About

Who is The Flaneurbanite?

My name is Shilpa Bhatnagar and I am an Urbanist, Writer and Photographer based in London, UK. I run Ideado Consulting – a niche practice that specialising in Place Making, Place Branding and Urban Destination Consulting projects around the world.

I also write on design and urbanism for various publications and websites, and very occasionally exhibit, publish or sell my photography. If you would like to collaborate with me, please email me at flaneurbanite (at) gmail (dot) com and I will respond promptly.

I have a deep interest in Cities, Architecture, Design, Art, Placemaking, Photography, Writing, Books, History and Travel, and this website is my attempt at bringing them all together in one place.

All the views and opinions on this site were mine at the time of writing. They probably still are.

On This Website…

… you will find my thoughts – mostly written, sometimes visual – on:

  • Urbanism: A curation of interesting developments and news, and the occasional opinion about the world of Urbanism that I inhabit professionally – urban planning, architecture, place-making, development, cities, and sustainability.
  • PhotoStories: This is the same old flaneurbanite, which was the germ of this much larger blog. If you followed it in its earlier avatar, you know what I’m talking about; if not – this is my photoblog on cities and places that I love – showcasing my love of flanerie and exploration, expressed through my camera.
  • Design: A scrapbook of everything that I think is functional eye-candy – handsome interiors, decor, products, shops etc.
  • Everything Else: Home to, quite literally, everything else that I have an opinion or an idea about (and I tend to have many). This could involve anecdotes, humour, a bit of fiction, and the occasional rant.
  • And ongoing Portfolios of my writing and photography – published, exhibited or otherwise.

The French term 'Flâneur' refers to the 'wanderer', the 'stroller' in the City – the 'observer', in one sense and the 'voyeur', in another – one who 'walks the City in order to experience it' (Charles Baudelaire). The Flaneurbanite documents the stories by this modern day act of flânerie – curious, covert, yet candid, she walks the City and tells the stories – the many legends, big and small, told and untold, hidden under its many layers.
