SPAV has presented their IDEAS on the workshop titled "Vision Vijayawada-2030" organised by VGTM-Urban Development Authority on January 21, 2011. The vision focusses on developing Vijayawada region as a "Solar city" and introducing Energy effcient Building code in the Building Bye-laws. Focussing on Architecture and Urban Design, SPAV proposes to create liveable places, waterfronts, new inner city residential oppurtunities, safe, modern and Integrated transport hub and protection as well as expansion of green spaces through environmentally sustainable design. Vitality of the region, the natural resource base, must be conserved and should become a guiding factor for future development. And then the region would grow under the roots of sustainability.
