Dharavi Design Practices Dharavi, Mumbai, India

“Master Thesis: DESIGN PRACTICES IN DHARAVI: Redefinition of the role of the architect in the user generated city” Analysis of the context of a Mumbai slum to define new paradigms of the Architect’s field of action, supported by a critical review of the previous academic work and by the study of the international architectural activity in those neighborhoods which are threatened by socio-economical and political pressure. Co-operation with local contractors and Urbz Mumbai studio, aimed to produce a more efficient “tool-house” model.

URBAN HIGH DENSITY Dharavi’s morphology is nothing more than the product of a costant and unpredictable reorganization of the built form according to its social and economical networks. There are two main conditions which regulate the apparently disordered structure of its urban tissue: the proximity to the workplace and the need of a shelter. The repetition and reorganization of units happens in relation to the proximity to exploitable and sharable resources. The work dimension affects the settlement growth, and the typology of building is mostly an extension of the productive space. This leads to an apprently irregular growth of micro units which appears from a larger scale as an intense fragmentation of the urban space, characterized by a huge density.

LARGE CONNECTIONS (8 to 14 meters) Dharavi large connections, the main roads, are normally between 8 and 14 meters large. They host vehicular traffic, pedestrian one and business micro activities on their sides.

MEDIUM/LARGE CONNECTIONS (4 to 8 meters) Dharavi medium/large connections, from 4 to 8 meters large, host vehicular traffic, pedestrian one and commercial activities on their sides, but they are normally a litle less crowded than the main roads. They are more intensly crossed by mortorbikes than cars. Some little trucks usually cross them to deliver products for shops, markets and some workshops.


SUPER SMALL CONNECTIONS (up to 1 meter) The most fascinating part of Dharavi consists in its contraddictions. From the intense traffic of the main roads to the silence and quiet of these little, tiny streets in the neighborhoods. It is physically impossible for vehicles to cross these roads.

SMALL CONNECTIONS (2 to 4 meters) In the inner parts of the nagars, smaller connections between 2 and 4 meters host no vehicular traffic (but some motorbikes), few little shops and many collective space for people living on its sides. Generally, these small roads cross districts which are mainly residential.

FLEXIBILITY Open spaces of little dimensions (no more than 200 square meters) are shared by the people of the neighbourhood in a mix of activities which also includes religious celebrations, and they recall those community daily life aspects which are typical of the village culture. More extended open fields also become the places of cricket matches, festivals and big open markets. There is no waste of space and no voids which wouldn’t be exploited in multiple ways.

THE TOOL-HOUSE The individual activates a small business with an improvised shelter, characterised by low cost materials.

If the business becomes productive, the individual decides to live in proximity of this activity, one floor is added, the family can move to the first floor. The business grows up and the activity can be extended on the ground floor, there is a need of further workforce.



A new floor is added for rent, this floor can be used as a living space for direct monetary income or it may become a workshop to improve the production.

Thanks to the growth of monetary and/or human workforce the activity is able to extend more on the ground floor. OPEN MARKET

FOCUS ON: RECYCLING INDUSTRY Commonly recognized as the recycling district, 13th Compund nagar is one of the most specific neighbourhoods which characterize the urban tissue of Dharavi. It involves more than 5000 workers, in a complex cluster of around 700 units whose main activity is the reuse of different waste materials.

NEW DESIGN Together with local general contractors, we designed a more efficient tool-house. Through an inclusive process we involved artisans from Dharavi to reproduce physical models which have been exhibited in the Urbz Studio, in Koliwada. The local contractors represent the mediator between dwellers and authorities. Concious of the place where they live, they have experience in construction techniques, and, parallely, they are able to define the right compromises to be able to build in a context of strong lack of regulations, political insecurity and economic pressure.

PROJECT STATUS: Concept DESIGN: Ernesto Fava, Urbz Studio Seoul LOCATION: Sadong-ri, Ulleung-do, South Korea PARCEL SURFACE: 45.000 sqm September 2017

Shinbisum Mixed Use Ulleung-do, South Korea

The Sadong-ri neighborhood in Ulleung-do Island is the subject of a deep transformation. A big harbor is going to be developed to respond to the touristic demand, and there is an urgent need to redefine infrastructures and facilities. The local identity is strong. It is fundamental to address the transformation of the area by respecting the inhabitants’ needs. By assuming that a future development on this part of the Island will start anyway, our work consisted into the definition of hypothesis of how this development could start in a sustainable way. Since some services are already part of the harbor area entourage, we decided to find a way to empower them next to the rise of new ones, and we thought about how a mixed-use neighborhood could collaborate to make this area more attractive without destroying the beauty of its landscape.

BUSINESS/FACILITIES: Located along the upper street, ranging from 50 to 250 sqm.

RESIDENTIAL UNITS: Accessible by the upper pedestrian road. Organized in different sizes: - single apartment (from 25 to 45sqm) - two family apartment (75 sqm) - Penthouse (from 120 sqm).

BUSINESS/FACILITIES: Accessible from the main road. Multistorey units can host a secondary entrance from the upper street.

MAIN ROAD: Up to 14 meters, hosting pedestrian and vehicular traffic, including bike paths and seawalks.

“We need to find a strategy to develop residential and commerical units at a lower material cost. Everything I have built here is imported from the mainland, which means very high construction prices..It is important to define an ecological iter of production� Ms.Kim Junghwa Sangil Hostel, Sadong-ri, Ulleung-do

Mecùfi Masterplan Mecùfi, Mozambico

The Mecùfi Masterplan aims to establish a new model of tourism, based on the share of knowledge, techniques, culture. By defining a connection between the tourist resort and the training hub, a new cosmopolitan model emerges. The creative process behind this project refers to the concept of Third Paradise, developed by the famous Italian artist Michelangelo Pistoletto. This idea embodies the collision between the natural and the artificial. It depicts a place where the beauty of the uncontaminated territory and the potential of the human mind come together, connecting themselves in a collective space where locals and foreigners have access to dialogue and share of knowledge. This symbol carries the idea that development in emerging economies has to be supported in a way which is more regardful of the countries’ respective contexts, people, cultures, customs and traditions. The morphology of the design we propose is a material transposition of the idea of collective, sustainable growth. Three circles define the main functions (Resort Facilities/Plaza, Campus, Conference Hall). However, this flexible model is open to multiple uses: more circles/functions can be added to respond to further local needs.

Entrance Hall


AXONOMETRY The design of the central pole recalls the concept of “Box Architecture”, whose peculiar characteristics take references from the project for the Red Bull Music Academy Headquarters by Maria Langarita and Victor Navarro in Mataderro, Madrid, Spain, which consists in a diffuse urban structure that has been built inside a 20th century warehouse in a way which makes it easily removable without touching the existing context. Something similar happens inside the Entrance Hall block. Flexible and differentlysized units are “chirurgically” inserted in the residual space of the new structure, by imitating the logic of a Russian Matriosca Doll. These units will accomodate the demand of facilities and sleeping/working rooms for the employees of the Liberia School and Resort.In front of the Hall, just next to the central fountain, a thin canal of water leads to the Beach. This revival of the post-modern Architecture of tranquillity, which recalls the open-air connective space of the Salk Institute of Louis Kahn, aims to emphasize the perception of the landscape which is framed by the promenade toward the Sea.

RESORT UNIT TYPE The resort articulates on two “wings� opening from the promenade. By recalling the shape of waves, parallel lines define the circulation among the units. These roads, which have variable sizes, become thinner and larger to define s mall-scale a nd d iffused collective and semi-public areas, such as little gardens, squares, facilities.The aggregation of apartments of different sizes defines t he e ntire m orphology of the touristic area. It is supported by multiple services along secondary axes or in front of the sea (tennis courts, belvedere restaurants, etc.). The types of units which compose the resort are organized around a central living area. Therefore, the size of the apartments is defined by adding units to the pivot surface. This addiction can be compact or diffuse: in the first case, the result is a big apartment where every space is connected to a central living; in the second one, more units are organized around a central courtyard. The outdoor spaces are defined b y a timber and clay pergola which can be covered in multiple ways ( cloth sheets, timber panels, etc.)

Villa Modugno Bari, Italy

Co-operation with Sergio Carletto Architetto to design a Single-Family Villa in Modugno, Bari, Italy. The project aims to become the meeting point between the modern architectural shape (the glazed facade of the waterfront) and the bizantine element revival (which is visible in the doors finishing and the monumental entrance mosaic). Through an original use of the circular shape, this design wants to underline the main natural elements: the golden mosaic beyond the entrance (fire), the olive tree in the living room (earth and air) and the terrace swimming pool (water).

Meeting Hall Oltrepo Pontecurone, Italy

Restoration of the facades and renovation of part of the former Town Hall in Pontecurone, Alessandria, Italy, intended to be transformed into the new Council Chamber. The closure of an old carriage entrance between via Emilia and the inner court allowed to realize a foyer welcoming the incoming public. The foyer defines a filter between the meeting room and the Council Chamber and is equipped with exhibit walls and vending machines. The refunctionalization of the existing fabric consists in both the interior reorganization through the demolition of the architectural barriers and the restoration of the facades, including the installation of new doors and windows.

Meeting Hall: up to 16 seats Court Bathrooms

Conference Hall: up to 100 seats




The renovation of the existing historical architecture represents a hard challenge in the context of the BIM design. Why? Because it implies working by phases, by defining a clear distinction between existing, demolished and new elements. Because the most part of the historical architectures contains shapes that are absolutely out of any standard, so it is fundamental to transform them into parametric elements of the software database. The model connects abacuses, price lists and scheduled times in a direct and dynamic workflow which facilitates the control of the project phases: design, construction and management.

Social cohesion, collective living, connected life. The city grows and the mistakes of the past come again. A delirious spread of concrete, advertisings, datas, lights, shape these dystopian views of the risks for our future. The city becomes a place where the human interaction disappears, where people get lost in a disordered flow of mirrors, filters and confused informations, where citizens transform themselves into their own shocases. The architectural shape loses its identity and a new faith belongs to ingenious softwares which are able to recollect, manage and elaborate big data flows.
