Sahara Swapna City

The proposals for Sahara Integrated Townships, Jhansi for Sahara Swapna City and Sahara City Homes were done with the intention to create a model for sustainable development that would balance the development entitlements with open space , sports and recreational requirements , and plenty of social infrastructure, schools etc to support community. In addition to housing the next 1 Million residents, the design proposes development within SUSTAINABILITY PRINCIPLES. This helps align practice to the resource scarce times we live in, and leads to convergence between ecological and economic factors in the developmental process.

We believe that maintaining ecological integrity has to be accorded primacy over achievement of socio-economic human needs. The guiding principle is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Sustainable development has evolved to reduce conflict between development and environment where indeed ecological, economic and social aspects of sustainability are inseparable. It seeks to harmonise the conflict between development which may be industrial, economic or social, and right to healthy environment. In other words, balance between environmental protection and developmental activities can be maintained by strictly adhering to sustainability principles.
