For Vaitla, the most important starting point to create a meaningful public space is understanding the critical issues of the surrounding fabric and what is important for the community. Vaitla is currently working with Mumbai Environmental Social Network, an NGO that has earned a reputation as an important think tank related to transport issues in Mumbai. She also works as visiting faculty at Rachana Sansad’s Institute of Urban Planning.
