University of Cape Town
A recent teaching and research collaboration between the School of Architecture, Urban Design, Planning and Geomatics of the University of Cape Town and the Programmes of Architecture, Planning and Urban Design at the Centre for Environment and Planning Technology (CEPT) in Ahmedabad, India, resulted in a comparative evaluation of two local areas in the old city of Ahmedabad and six local areas in Cape Town, in order to identify factors relating to spatial structure and form affecting their performance. 1 The observations reported here relate only to the old city of Ahmedabad which, it is argued, holds important lessons for contemporary urban design.
