LA 65
Many diverse layers of a metropolis – nature, history, spaces, people and culture - are looked at through the eyes of urban designers in City, Culture and Creativity, an international sketching competition organized by Indian Institute of Urban Designers IUDI. In the form of illustrations, sketches, paintings and in other graphic formats, various entries show the vibrant world of Delhi that surrounds them. The special feature showcases the winning entries.
“Urban design is about making connections between people and places, movement, and the built environment, nature, and built structures. It draws together the many elements of place-making, environmental concerns, social equity, and economic viability into the creation of places with distinct beauty and identity. Place-making is the creation of a setting that imparts a ‘sense of place’ to an area that is actively used by people. A place that is open and accessible to all the people qualifies to be a public space. A person trained as an artist, architect, or designer captures the essence of these places through sketches, paintings, and digital graphics through various mediums.

As the world continues to urbanize and globalize, cities are becoming the predominant form of human settlement and the scale at which many of the most pressing societal issues are engaged. Cities are places to explore culture and creativity. Delhi has many facets and has been recognized as a multi-layered city, cities within a city, a cosmopolitan city, etc.”
