Kathmandu Form on Fabric
  Pedro B. Ortiz Kathmandu Metropolitan Metro Matrix urban plan earthquake reconstruction
  Nepal urban fabric is tight and never before the metropolitan size was addressed in history. Growth has taken place in a fabric continuum that needs to be qualified to reach an upper level of biological evolution. It has to grow from moss to a more evolved bio form.

The Nepal earthquake can be an occasion to rebuilt the destroyed areas providing an opportunity to introduce the new metropolitan form. Destruction can be the potential for reconstruction with a new pattern. Form has to be provided to what was just Fabric.
