A watch tower, a bridge that rolls-over at every hour, a giant-wheel and a tram service along the river front. These are from among some of the initiatives proposed by a group of planning and architecture students at the Urban Design Studio Exhibition at the JNAFAU school of Planning and Architecture on Monday.

Dividing the Musi river front into seven zones, the group proposed as many as nine parks, a tram connectivity along the front, government schools, hotels, function hall, event park, multi-use facility, exhibition place, art and crafts workshop and sale point, low income groups’ housing, a subway next to Afzalgunj bus station, a view tower, interpretation centre for explaining the heritage of buildings in the area and skywalk from Koti women’s college among many more ideas.

Students exhibited their miniature models as part of an Urban Design Studio semester organised by the Institute of Urban Designers-India’s AP chapter. The studio work involved extensive study and documentation and preparation of large scale study models that were reviewed by a panel of experts in the areas of urban planning, urban design, landscape design and transportation planning.
