The British Academy/Leverhulme Trust project - Transformation of urban spaces in Kathmandu, aims to examine changing faces of urban spaces in the city. Urban open spaces(s) in Kathmandu have been an important part of the city's urbanism.
In recent years, public spaces in Kathmandu have been subject to change, which put the architecture, use and identity of an important urban component in question. Using Tudikhel in Kathmandu, this research aims to capture the dynamics of urban space transformation through social, political and neoliberal interactions. As well as providing full details of the project itself, this website is a tool to collate and disseminate information, raise awareness to eventually lead to a greater understanding of changing roles of urban spaces in our society. The project has a particular focus on Tundikhel, the historic central open space in Kathmandu.
This website provides a forum for contributing through comments, uploading articles, images and any other rare documents. It is a collaborative project between academics, practitioners and wider communities enhancing the quality and experience of public space in Kathmandu.
