 Delhi, the capital of India faces the issues and problems that every developing nation’s city faces - migration, slums, price rise, unemployment and over that a neglected river ‘Yamuna’.

This project attempts to tackle all these issues at once in scheme that spans 21 km over the river Yamuna's entire length in city. The idea is that to clean a river that is being polluted at every point inside the city a continuous cleaning mechanism is required that cleans the river all along its entire length. Hence the ‘tube-city’ idea arises - a structure that runs over the river, cleans the river, and further is a small city in itself proving food, shelter, employment and transport facilities without utilizing any more city land.

The Tube City is designed to be dynamic that will keep on changing in functionality depending on the area. For instance, the outskirts of the Tube City would be primarily agrarian along with commercial spaces that would facilitate the wholesale trading of the produce/grains. As the Tube City progresses toward the main city, the agricultural areas would give way to more open areas and residential spaces and public parks. Deeper toward the center of Delhi, the functionality would change to commercial and office complexes. Hence, there would be a smooth transition of the functionality inside the Tube City from North Delhi to South Delhi spanning those 21 km of the Yamuna waters.

The Tube City will be horizontally layered in order to provide a self sufficient city with metro transit public parks and 160 lane highway for motor traffic. The water for all the functions of the Tube City will come from the Yamuna River through capillary action. There will also be a Pylon Grid with translucent photovoltaic panels for harnessing solar energy that would be utilized throughout the Tube City. There will be an optimum utilization of daylight in order to save energy.
