Uttorayon provides a solution to current issues of rapid urbanization confronting the developing world, where massive population movements generate disordered growth and limited resource is an all-pervasive fact. This master-planning model addresses issues unique to Indian economics, sociology, history, diversity within the larger philosophy of environmental protection & rejuvenation. Built in one of the highest rainfall areas of the world, the development is a prime example of how built form can work with its local climate rather than against it. The strategy adopted respected the natural topography of the site and used it for an integrated surface drainage system. By calculating the slopes of roads and using existing natural streams, costs were saved by eliminating the need for expensive piping networks. As a result, more capital could be allocated to creating a secure and high-quality infrastructure. While these services are exceptional by Indian standards the total developing costs of the project added up to USD6/sq.m. Awarded the Cityscape Award for the Best Masterplanning and Urban Design, the Uttorayon is an exemplar for sustainable development of upcoming towns and cities with an embedded agenda for enhancing the socio-cultural engagement of the inhabitants.
