Dilli Haat, Public Spaces-Public space development

Project Status: Completed

Being the national capital region, Delhi has been host to the development of various cultural hubs. Also the historic city of Dilli has always been a prominent cultural centre, during the seven times that it was built and perished. Hence, cultural centres have always been important to this city.A new addition to this already thriving cultural jamboree was Dilli Haat at INA, near AIIMS in the year 1994, which was a huge success from the time of its inception. This was followed by Dilli Haat at Pitampura in north central Delhi and now another haat is being introduced at Janakpuri in west Delhi.

Designing Dilli Haat was a challenge to relish, because of the huge popularity of the enterprise. It was a competition entry called by Delhi tourism. The construction began in August 2011 and is expected to complete in February 2014. The project comprises of two adjacent sites, which are a part of a huge green belt. Dilli Haat occupies the larger 6 acre site whereas the smaller site has a proposal for a youth hostel or hotel and parking facilities. The site is located in the densely populated residential area of Janakpuri, in west Delhi. It is very well connected by public transport, especially after the introduction of the new metro link. For outstation visitors, railway and air connections are quite convenient too. It was a great opportunity to develop the haat in west Delhi, as it does not enjoy adequate centers of this kind; the main melting pots being south and central Delhi. Here was a chance to create another nucleus around which cultural life in west Delhi could thrive. At the same time, it was a challenge to retain or replenish the green cover, while taking up extensive building work.

Archohm, taking cognizance of all the requirements, so as to make the haat functionally viable program, decided to give a music theme to the center. The lack of any center dedicated to music came glaring while doing research and soon, the theme of ‘haat beat’ gathered momentum. A state-of-the-art auditorium that could hold large music concerts, an amphitheatre, a music centre that could hold sales and exhibition of musical instruments along with inviting exuberant gathering of budding musicians and music lovers became central to this theme.
