INNER SPACE

Strongly influenced by the geographical and political dynamics of the region, the historic town of Jodhpur provides an outstanding example of traditional urbanism of Rajasthan. Conceived and developed within the medieval, the historic city today has to balance the demands of a modern town with the preservation of tangible and intangible heritage of the urban center.

Taken as key goal the REHABILITATION OF URBAN SCENARIO and acting in accordance with the directives of the municipality, the aim of the thesis is to offer an action strategy with a double scale vision.

Firstly proposing guidelines for the management of the urban system and secondly developing micro-scale design solutions according to local tradition and respecting the rigid social structure of India in order to meet the needs of both the public administration and the local community.
