Operational Landscape: Mumbai "slum" Renovation

Urban scale and it´s complexities

TEAM: Moises Gamus, Michael Harrison.  FACULTY: Luis Falcon, Hemant Purohit

Research on the reorganization of flows and forces that give shape to a city. Starting point: THE VOID (i.e. public space).

Finding optimal walking distances between main public spaces (250 mts), a network of movility and interaction mingles through the built environment, emulating the current urban tissue which is a result of self organization… Learning from self organization, understanding its simple rules and its emerging complexity.

Mumbai´s reality:

TOO dense and still growing.

 Scarcity of resources: Water, energy and waste management; conflict in movility and lack of personal living space.

THE SITE: Saki-Naka / Asalfa
