PDP London, in collaboration with Gray Parikh Architects and Space Syntax, has reached the winners list in the international design competition for the rejuvenation of Badami town precinct, organised by Catalytic Think Tank in Bangalore, India. There were a total of 32 entries submitted and 5 were selected to be awarded.

The competition entry focused on proposing an incremental approach to the sensitive regeneration of the Badami historic precinct. It attempted to put forward a framework of design ideas - spatial, economic and managerial, that would contribute to developing a sustainable strategy for managing the heritage-led regeneration of Badami. The intent was to promote and celebrate tourism as a positive force for heritage conservation as well as contributing to the improvement of the quality of life of the inhabitants.
