Kinetic City: Designing For Informality In Mumbai


Download: Audio, Video

Speaker(s): Professor Rahul Mehrotra.
Chair: Professor Ricky Burdett

Recorded on 18 May 2010 in Wolfson Theatre, New Academic Building.

Mumbai, a Kinetic City, presents a compelling vision that potentially allows us to better understand the blurred lines of contemporary urbanism and the changing roles of people and spaces in urban society. An architecture or urbanism of equality in an increasingly inequitable economic condition requires looking deeper to find a wide range of places to mark and commemorate the cultures of those excluded from the spaces of global flows. These don't necessarily lie in the formal production of architecture, but often challenge it. Here the idea of a city is an elastic urban condition, not a grand vision, but a grand adjustment.
