AS FAMILIES GROW, INDIVIDUAL DWELLING SPACE IS ENCROACHING ON THE COMMUNITY PRODUCTION SPACES AND THE PUBLIC STREETS. DHARAVI IS APPROACHES A POINT OF SATURATION WIHICH THREATENS ITS PRODUCTIVITY AS WELL AS ITS COMMUNAL INFRASTRUCTURE, ITS IDENTITY.

CHAWL 3

OUR MOST IMPORTANT INDIVIDUAL ASSET IS THAT WHICH WE ALL SHARE

INDIVIDUAL HOMES HAVE ENCROACHED IN COMMUNAL SPACE.

LACKING PRODUCTIVE SOCIAL SPACE, CHAWL 2 RESIDENTS ARE EAGER TO DEVELOP THEIR HOMES INTO TOWERS. WHILE CHAWL 3 RESIDENTS, WHO HAVE AN ACTIVE PRODUCTIVE SOCIAL SPACE, ARE HAPPY WITH THEIR HOMES AND WOULD SIMPLY LIKE UPGRADED INFRASTRUCTURE.
