In the processes of economic and cultural globalization, Indian cities lack strong identity. Place identity emerges as a central concern of both scholars and other people. Streetscape is an immediate vista of the city that people grasp and create the general image and identity of the city. A creative community vision can continuously evolve and embrace new ideas while balancing the inherent conflicting nature of past, present, and future community values and culture. Select a place or street in any Indian city that can be redesigned to promote cultural identity of the community.
