I'm a student in my final year at Dawood college of Engineering and Technology, Department of Architecture, Karachi, Pakistan. I would like some guidance in the research phase of my thesis topic, which is "Mixed Use Development in High Density Urban Areas".
My research begins with the considerations relating to the provision of facilities and amenities to people living in a dense urban area. Due to lack of land, should the projects be mixed use or not? Bylaws for the urban city of Karachi would be taken into consideration, but what new advancements might there be for incorporating future approaches for mixed use developments?
I would kindly ask the members to please guide me in this phase of research and provide suggestions.
Thesis: Mixed use, high density
