sustainable design + architecture

 

D3 HOUSING TOMORROW 2011
Location: MUMBAI
Timeline: DESIGN COMPETITION

 

Competition proposal for housing strategies for living in the future.

This proposal explores an integrated, responsive and yet hybrid housing typology for the city,by anchoring the basis of a new typology in the cultural and communal lifestyle offered in a chawl environment.

The design idea also looks at exploring the mixed-use pattern of development via socially connected streets, corridors and courtyards- elements that remain mostly invisible owing the density of usage and occupants. Therefore, by retaining the classic architectural elements of a chawl and respecting the spaces that allow the communities to grow, a new hybrid housing typology is created that allows the inclusion of all segments of society, in a density that prevents occupants from isolation.
