Crowd Dynamics: A Tool in Shaping Urban Spaces

Ashima A [2] | Manoj Kumar K [2]

Abstract: In designing urban spaces, crowd behaviour and their dynamics are usually overlooked. ?Crowd dynamics can be defined as the study of how and where crowds form and move? {1}. This paper aims to demonstrate how careful observation and analysis of crowd movement and the space. Crowd density and the response behaviour will vary for different nodes in a city. Crowd dynamics study help us to understand how crowd movement is affecting the space and how a crowd occupies the space. The morphological aspect has direct relation with people behaviour. Thus, crowd dynamics the result of a collective behaviour, which have impacts on physical setting. This is expected to be important for the shaping of urban morphology. The study is conducted by analyzing the urban form of the marketplace of the crowd interacting place of the city. The urban form characteristic i. e., the physical setting components of the market (here case Chalai Market) is analyzed to understand the interrelation with crowd dynamics. Thereby the study reaches at the conclusion by establishing the interrelation with the parameters identified on the pattern and density of crowd. The findings of this paper aid the place making process, which consider the aspects of cro wd dynamics.
