Ecological Urbanism – Adyar River

ATA2018

Urbanization at its base leads to land transformation without considering its implications.Changing agricultural, forest lands, wetlands, creeks and rivers disrupt the natural ecosystems and causes ecological crisis. As as result of which our urban centers are devoid of natural ecosystems ,hence there is a need to conserve our urban ecosystems and strive to revive depleted ones. Chennai (India) being a major urban center with possible scope for revitalization of depleted resources.The site in context is adyar river and it’s watershed which had been degraded to extent which is questionable.It was also one of the majorly affected river systems in the recent flood.Hence there is a need for ecological resilience to mitigate flooding.
