Kashmir_2050_Rejuventaion of dal lake highlights the urge for refinement of construction methods and techniques / new habitats in a war-torn scenic splendor – paradise, and also the most dangerous place on earth where advanced architectural techniques provide new perspectives and efficient alternatives to tackle the problems of relocationhaphazard urbanizationloss of water bodies and also takes architects into spotlight and questions their role in a conflict zone and how possibly as designers can contribute to help people see a better infrastructure/future and skid away from the pain and trauma that they have faced because of the constant nuclear powers facing off a small space.

Scientific Interest

As Kashmir is facing an increasing frequency and intensity of disasters that are natural as well as man-made,  the impact on the economy and the construction & development sector is massive, it is obvious that the infrastructure built several years ago cannot fulfill its purpose. However, erasing the past and culture cannot be the solution. The new building regulations and lack of material availability have caused a reduction in climate and culture-responsive construction. There needs to be an interdisciplinary approach cutting across social, political, and environmental disciplines, all strengthened by the wisdom of the community.
