Can we reorganize the Chandigarh Sector and make it what it was intended to be? a Neighbourhood unit or A MOHALLA (A close knit community)!
Can we achieve a more interactive, socially inclusive, healthy & livable environment for the citizens within a sector by redesigning its open spaces?
How can such a change be brought in an existing public space?
