Infrastructure Landscape is the methodology that expands the performance parameters of a designed landscape to a multi-functional, high performance system. Infrastructure Landscape can transform urban blight into an urban destination. It can help create an iconic identity for a city by utilizing latent natural and cultural characteristics.

About $ 1.5 trillion investment will be made in the infrastructure sector in the next 10 years out of which about $ 400 billion would be made in the coming 3 years alone. The opportunities these investments will throw for entrepreneurs in transforming the infrastructure of  roads, railways, metros, waterways, coastal seaways, ports, airports, irrigation and water works, housing, power, smart cities, industrial and transport corridors, commercial real estate etc. There can be no other time and no other country that can provide these kind of once in a lifetime kind of opportunities than here and now.

As the world faces an urgent need for new and repaired infrastructure systems, design and planning, professionals have the crucial opportunity to reimagine networks that support multiple uses and functions. Multipurpose infrastructure conserves land, shares the financial load of its development, restores previously overlooked or damaged natural ecologies, reinforces healthy transit options, and provides public access to much needed open space.
