hey guyzz..im a 5th year architecture student..my thesis topic is rehabilitation of project affected villages..can anyone plzzz suggest me case studies on villages which have been rehabilitated..thanq
rehabilitation of rural village
As you are looking for case studies do check out the dams(Sardar Sarovar - Narmada), places prone to earthquake (Bhuj earthquake - villages around it eg. Bhadli), coastal villages, cyclone effected areas (Orissa). Also there are NGOs. You can develop a methodology to rehabilitate village. Chk out http://www.narmada.org/nvdp.dams/indira-sagar/IndiraSagar.pdf - it has an annexure showing few pointers from government rehabilitaion prog.
IF YOU DONT WANT TO GET CONFUSED DONT READ ANY FURTHER.
I don't want to sound condescending but why would any1 take a village as a B.Arch thesis topic?
What happens to those who are landless labours and specialist people - iron smith; potters; fishermen... aren't their jobs site specific, or may be they are famous in that region?
What about environment impact
Most of the rehab takes place due to 'cropping' of dams or for mines or setting up plants... These People come up with EIA but what about the EIA report of the places where villages will ultimately 'shift'.
Above questions can definitely be answered but the list does not end. You'll have to meander across above as you are doing an architectural thesis and not waste your time on the above inevitable list.
all the best!
