Thesis: Riverfront development in Guwahati (Assam)
Hello everyone,

As my subject line suggests, this is regarding my final year thesis. I am interested in developing the Brahmaputra riverfront in Guwahati, Assam, India. As Guwahati is the gateway literally to the northeastern states of India, it is the main place for garnering the tourists. Plus, the development would be such that the inhabitants of Guwahati and nearby places can access it in terms of recreation and learning about the cultures of the other states. Floating restaurants, ferry-system from one bank to the other would be a part of it.

I had had discussions with seniors and faculty members and they say that it is interesting but also that I will need to do a lot of research and surveying. Can anyone help me in this?

I'm a 2006 fresh graduate from Cairo university in Egypt and my graduation project was somehow similar to your thesis topic: it was about reaccessing the Nile river and redevelopping its banks as public spaces. I'd like to know more first about your educational system, because our final product was a designed project and not a thesis. Tell me more about that and I think we can have useful discussions further on.

Hi Swagata,
you can refer to the riverfront development of Sabarmati in Ahamedabad and the canal development in Kerala.

Thank you Eman, Anubandh and Smita...

Yes, my guide asked me to carry out my case studies in Ahmedabad, Sabarmati; this is a good option I guess. And Eman, my thesis is a part of my 10th semester (final year) curriculum.

Now basically I have to design the entire belt in front of the river and see to what can be feasible development. In this starting point, I'd be basically getting the master plan of the area and decide upon the site I'd like to develop. As to what to develop, this can come after the analysis requirements of the people and scope of development.
