Parametric Architectural Solution to River Front Developments: Restoring River Ravi Lahore
The major intention of this research is to present a catalogue for the development of river Ravi by using the potentials of digital tools to resolve issues related to heritage connection and preservation for development of tourism, awareness and economic development for the people living near Ravi River. This paper aims to contribute to this intention by examining the current situation near river Ravi through remodelling of the site using parametric architectural solutions. The scope of the study includes exploring the concepts of parametric architecture, digital architectural tools, and study of river Ravi area for its sustainable economic growth, heritage preservation and tourism development. The research is significant with reference to current situation where process of urban redevelopment proposals by government authorities are underway, so this research can contribute towards some aspect it. In this paper, we have explored some proposals that are undertaken in the fourth-year design studio in Department of Architecture, University of Engineering and Technology, Lahore to familiarize the students about the current situation of River Ravi urban development and to think about parametric architectural solutions for it.
