The process started by understanding the existing conditions & spaces which are in the Byculla park. The site holds rich heritage and cultural values which were studied to further program the design and required spaces. The existing natural cover, which are tree-typology , groundscape , softscape materials , heights of the entrance are understood with the help of diagrams; the narrative for these studies evolve towards the key idea of visual and physical curiosities which can be experienced in the space.
Further the analytical and logical approach was laid out through studies of light & shadows , background-foreground , enclosures , heritage zones , scale-proportion , tactile textures. The proposal intended to retain the general character of the park : heritage zone. For education and entertainment of the public, different spaces were designed for interaction and making people understand the vegetation species , rainwater sustainability etc. The experience of the people is sequenced in a way where one is connected with the nature and the binaries that unflod : formal & informal , chaos & order develops a sense curiosity in the people.
