|Discussion||Asian Games Village Commentary
"Drawing on earlier urban housing models, Rewal's Asian Games Village in New Delhi used a network of streets and squares with vehicular access at either end of the site. Its morphology resembles a traditional village, with cubic solids and voids that are characteristic of the Indian urban fabric (compare with cities such as Jaisalmer Old Delhi). They offer shade and yet remain vitally alive to the pressures and pleasures of the people who live there. Entrance gateways with linked upper terraces punctuate the sequence of courtyard and garden spaces."
