Project Summary

Urban renewal and transport circuit

In the mid-1970s, a ring railway was established that circumscribed the extent of New Delhi at the time. Further extension of the passenger rail service was not integrated with other transit systems and has therefore been underutilized. The Changing Tracks: Re-imagining the Delhi Ring Rail project converts this spatial resource from a restricted mono-use barrier into a multi-use civic and traffic space within the urban fabric.

Basic search

Our search defaults to term-pairing AND. If you search sustainable construction - then the search engine will look for any items containing sustainable AND construction


photovoltaic OR solar

Looks for either word

Combine alternative terms for more specific searching


geothermal -heating

Excludes a term from results, automatically ANDs other terms listed


"zero carbon"

Use quotation marks to search for a specific phrase or combination

Wildcards (one or more characters)
