Appointed as international design consultant advising on the high profile project; located between the national capital and a popular tourist town
Provided Urban Design and Landscape Concepts for the project
JFP was appointed as the international design consultant for urban and landscape design on the Pink City Expressway Project in India. The 225km expressway connects the national capital, Delhi, to the popular tourist city of Jaipur; the capital of Rajasthan State.
JFP’s assignment was to provide concepts relating to the urban and landscape design of the Expressway that would mark the project as being world-class. JFP’s design creatively balanced the Client’s desire for a world class road environment, which would encourage new travellers to use the Expressway, against the needs of the high volumes of freight traffic, which currently utilise the existing highway. Modern interpretations of intricate patterns and styles inspired by traditional Rajasthani architecture and handicrafts were incorporated into the wide variety of landscape features designed for the Expressway.
JFP’s involvement with the Pink City Expressway Project expanded its experience in designing urban landscapes associated with expressways and also provided valuable experience and business connections within India.
