Abstract

Strongly influenced by the geographical layout and the political dynamics of the region, the historic town of Jodhpur, called the “Blue City”, provides an outstanding example of traditional urbanism in Rajasthan. Currently Jodhpur needs to address the reorganization and rehabilitation of water and electrical systems and the waste collection, the main causes of deterioration within the historic walls. A structured methodology is needed to analyse the historical urban and connective fabric in order to meet the main needs of refurbishment and conservation. Starting from a critical rapid survey process the aim of this ongoing research is to identify the components of the historic city through diagnostic methods and a more cultural approach.
