A REALITY The urbanism of urban India represents a fascinating intersection where the informal city — physically incoherent, and yet a symbol of optimism — challenges the Formal City — encoded in architecture — to reposition and remake the city as a whole. The Informal City forces the Formal City to re -engage itself in present conditions by dissolving its utopian project to fabricate multiple dialogues with its context. IT’S CHALLENGE: Could this become the basis for a rational discussion about co -existence? Or is the emergent urbanism in India inherently paradoxical where the coexistence of these differing forms of Cities and their particular physical states of utopia and dystopia inevitable? Can the spatial configuration for how this simultaneity occurs actually be formally imagined? ...an essay...a design...a plan of action. The expression is the competition.
