Ashok B. Lall Architects is committed to sustainable practice since it was founded in 1980 in the field of the built environment. We have been involved in the preparation of redevelopment proposals for Bahadur Shah Zafar Marg and Roshnara Bagh in Delhi.
We also prepared a redevelopment plan for “Khirki” village as consultants to the Delhi Urban Arts Commission on behalf of TVB School of Habitat Studies. The plan was adopted in principle by the Delhi Development Authority and Municipal Corporation of Delhi. We have in the process also dealt with the local authorities in the area and built a rapport with the locals.
Within the specific discipline of transport infrastructure design and planning we have been involved in the design of transport infrastructure for the city of Delhi as a consultant to Delhi Integrated Multi-modal Transit Systems. Our scope included the design and technical specifications for subways and foot over bridges at a number of busy intersections in the city. In order to provide an accurate design for implementation, all sites were surveyed before proposing the design. This gives us an edge in managing and delivering public realm and pedestrian infrastructure projects.
We will be the principal facilitators and designers in this project involving consultants with technical expertise in specific areas of detailed transit survey and design.

Oasis Design Inc. based out of New-Delhi, India – is a architectural and landscape design practice that has chosen to respond to the global climate change mitigation challenges by adopting sustainable design practices in the local urban context.
As part of its commitment to improving the ‘quality of life’ in our cities, ODI has been consistently involved in designing various urban plazas, public spaces, streetscapes and other urban regeneration projects, most notable among which include a comprehensive landscape development plan for the South Delhi Greenway – a non-motorized transport corridor conceived and proposed by ODI along the 12.5 km long Barapullah drain. This Open-space Masterplan project aims at cleaning up the dirty drain and transforming the same into a landscaped eco-corridor connecting all different fragmented greens into a continuous whole, which in turn would also connect to the major public transit hubs in the vicinity.
ODI has been involved in this project to take advantage of their specific expertise in landscape and other surface treatment relevant to pedestrian mobility.
