Satellite City Urban Design Kolkata, India

Climate-Resilient Urban Design

As an urban design consultant from 2010-2011 to conduct a sustainable satellite cities project in the Kolkata (Calcutta) Metropolitan Area funded by the United Kingdom's Department for International Development (DFID), under the auspices of the Government of West Bengal. A team of Indian urban infrastructure experts from Louis Berger-India worked in collaboration with us to develop approaches, methods and tools to configure sustainable regional satellite settlements in the West Bengal region surrounding Kolkata.

In Kolkata's surrounding West Bengal region, an important challenge was configuring a compact development pattern to respond simultaneously to strong winds, flood risks and high temperature and humidity. We developed prescriptive measures and performance standards for a climate-resilient public realm, including urban ventilation, green infrastructure, and solar design
