The vision was to create an integrated multi modal transit hub that enriches a smooth functioning of the city and simultaneously redefining legibility of Anand Vihar precinct and improving the quality of public realm.
Covering an area of 1482 Sq.km and half the area already urbanized, the population of delhi is ever-increasing with a population density of about 11,000 per Sq.km. The rail transport is one of the key transport linkage in Delhi. It serves as a focal point and key junction of connectivity for Northern region to rest of the country, with 10 rail corridors converging into Delhi.
A rapid growth has created infrastructural challenges with increasing passenger load and inability of the existing railway station to handle the rush, especially from the trans-Yamuna area. This was recognized by the Northern Railway and with an objective to develop one major railway terminal in the trans-Yamuna region, Anand Vihar Railway Station
FUNCTIONAL CONCEPT DIAGRAM
PARAMETRIC ROOF & COLUMN STRUCTURE
CONCOURSE CONCEPTUAL SECTION
Integration of different existing transit modes and prioratise pedestrain connectivity over vehicular connections between transit modes.
Mixed used development over parcel 1 which has a possibility of revenue generation for Railways as well as provide accomodations to the railway staffs. Redefine road networks and creating multiple faces for railway development.
Creating urban icons by designing technologically advanced and optimised built form giving it a distinct character through Cohesive masses and using existing urban infrastructure to redefine legibility in and around Anand Vihar precinct.
The diagram represents the idea of segregation of departing and alighting passengers through different concourse to avoid collision and maintain a smooth movement in and out the railway station. As an urbanist approach the design gives importance to both pedestrain and vehicular movement, providing direct subway connections to other transit systems and segregation vehicular lanes for different typology of public and private vehicles. Scope for sufficient retail activity can be generated in these transition zones.
A platform length of 600m designed through modular approach of design for every 50m of platform with evenly distributed facilities & amenities with provisions of sifficient sitting space, food & retail kiosks, sanitary facilities and information display panels.
Segregation of boarding and alighting passengers by segregating the entry and exit doors of train coaches according to moving direction of train.
Structure Plan For Anand Vihar Precinct
Strength: Availability of under-utilised green field land and a proposed TOD of Karkadoma enhances the possibility of station back road and real estate development. Addition of RRTS along the railway corridor will lead to a creation of a high footfal multi-modal transit hub.
Proposed Structure Plan For Anand Vihar
Opportunity: An oppertunity to create an identity for Anand Vihar and using existing urban infrastructure to redefine road networks which enhances site accessibility and improve pedestrain connectivity.
