Accessible Design
 
Deveoping area around a lake.
hello. I am a Student from Sir J.J. college of architecture, Mumbai.
we have been given an assignment in which we have to choose a lake and develop it. I have chosen my lake, its Ambe Ghosale lake in Thane.
its rectangular in shape.
I already got a jogging track around the circumference of the lake, and on the right side of the lake, there is an empty plot of 80 by 110 meters, which i can use for designing and working on. the lake is a rectangle of 240 by 110 meters.
we are not allowed to design any permanent structures on the water body.

please help me with some ideas...
thank you.

Tejas, This all rather depends upon (a) the shape of the land around the lake (flat, sloping, hilly, etc)?
(b) are there any prevailing winds you can use for cooling light structures?
(c) does the lake have any wildlife? because if so, then keep humans off.

As from light structures, you might like to look at the work of Frei Otto.

Hello frank, thank you for responding. :)
regarding the shape, it is a plain flat land. and the secondly, there is no wildlife. its a lake in the middle of the city. its like, its surrounded from all the sides by buildings and highways, and busy streets, and residential areas...

and yes, about the winds, no such powerful winds. like, not that useful. mostly, because of the buildings.

Tejas, what is the width of land on each side of the lake? I ask because as the lake is surrounded on all sides by urban buildings, then there should be some sort of buffer zone between the lake and the buildings, otherwise, street dirt, noise, etc will detract from the tranquility of the lake.
