What happens when we build a bridge between the construction sector and the fields of architecture and design? This event brings together Navji, a slum contractor, and students from the Rachna Sansad architecture program to exchange opinions, knowledge, and skills regarding the challenges of creating low-cost housing in Mumbai. Watch as both teams build a model of a shanty house within a small area, housing a family and fulfilling a set of functional requirements, within a limited amount of time. The showdown will be followed by consultation and critique as the participants review one another’s models and discuss what worked and what could be improved.
This event will be conducted in English, Hindi, and Marathi.
