Urban Voids: Flyovers and Underpasses in Karachi

This project was undertaken in June, 2018 as part of my internship at the Urban Resource Center in Karachi. Data collection for this project took three and a half months. The internship constitutes a part of Masters programme, Global Studies (M.A.), at Humboldt University in Berlin, Germany. It was an independent project assigned to me by Mr. Younus. I was provided with a camera and a tentative list of flyovers and underpasses in Karachi. Through the course of my work, I have made many additions to that list. To the best of my knowledge, there is only one site missing in this work: Golimar Way. Unfortunately, I could not cover this site due to safety concerns but I have included it in the mapping. I apologize if there are omissions and mistakes in the report and the mapping. The forthcoming discussion of my methodology will elucidate the limitations I faced in my research.
