Project proposals described here relate to the area of the Haram Gate, one of the main entrances to the Walled City, and a stretch of the Sarafa Bazaar in which there are significant handicraft activities. Both projects are part of an integrated program of interventions in those areas that relate to the underground infrastructures, conservative restoration and new construction buildings.

The proposals tends to a continuity with the Punjabi architecture tradition. The elements present in this tradition are an expression of a figurative and formal corpus but also are demonstratives of a close relationship with the climate, an inseparable aspect from architecture.

As well as the main rest places and transit are covered by large canvases for protection from the sun, even in the both proposals for Haram Gate Pavilion and for the Sarafa Bazaar Canvases Mobile System, the solar control take on a constitutive role.
