If we consider a city as a giant man-made house, it is created in two parts. One part is the physical city which is created by human endeavour or manufacture – the object that is literally made by human beings; the second part is created by time, which makes the city an autonomous artefact. An urban artefact has a life of it own beyond the intention for which it was created. The term “urban artefact” as used refers not just to physical objects in the city, but also to the patterns of organisation, spaces and all designed or controlled aspects of the physical environment. The presence of an urban artefact in turn influences and structures the development around it. The image shows the process of how the new built proposal blend with the existing man made city.
