Abstract

The paper aims to highlight the Christian-Muslim coexistence in a fractured urban setting next to an elitist urban community divided by a prolonged wall forming an 'edge' in Lahore. The objectives to achieve the aim were: (1) to explore 'multifaith urbanism' and its historical context and (2) to experience the space through illustrations and placemaking. To achieve the exploration a separate research methodology is used. A systematic literature review would assess all accessible research related to Christian-Muslim coexistence and urban fractured spaces. This would be followed by experiential studies of space to present the character of space. The research provides evidence of the urban social existence of Christian and Muslims at a community level and simultaneously shows urban alienation at a district level. Due to the chosen research method, the research results may lack generalizability to other urban spaces facing similar issues hence researchers are encouraged to test the proposed outcomes further. The research fulfils the need to study and understand a multifaith urban space trying to sustain livelihood facing an elongated wall.
