I am Dipasha rathod, a student pursuing urban designing from cept university. The aim to do something for the betterment and be a changemaker lead me to do this with my interests in art and design acting as a catalyst. I would like to contribute my best work and efforts. My role in the studio was to work upon the smaller parts of the larger urban topics. I designed the service infrastructure for the community re-settlement which included smaller constructive urban devices
The space used for living and settlements are un-functionable without the presence of public service infrastructure qualities in the locality. Any infrastructural thing that behave as a catalyst for the betterment and welfare of locality and community in different ways can be termed as service infrastructure. For example, electricity that is the most important thing and has become a need, waste management to maintain a safe and hygienic community, black water management for hygiene, telephone lines for people’s network and public toilets that is important to the city life. A city seems unimaginable without such qualities. Hence, the public service infrastructure is crucial in the making of the city.
