Master of Urban Design students visit Mumbai to present work in progress

Students from the Master of Urban Design Fall 2013 OneCity Studio are in Mumbai participating in research and workshops to complete the conceptualization, planning and design of a housing-intensive development project.

The Mumbai urban design research studio takes the geological age of Anthropocene as a call to re-imagine the terms and possibilities of housing in Mumbai. Drawing from work in the humanities, including Subaltern Studies, post-colonial theory and recent historical work directly engaging with geology and climate, the studio explores housing strategies specific to Mumbai as a global place. The usual terms of coding urban specificity – defined within a logic of development and financing – are reviewed and set aside.
