Despite the large scale of migration in absolute numbers of people involved and cityâ€™s long history of population and labour mobility, migration has rarely been reliably responded architecturally in the city. Itâ€™s time we recognize the needs of migrants: though their housing needs are minimal compared to their need for income and employment; this is what is important to develop them socially and culturally.
Center for Migrant Workers 1
lack of employment in rural areas
move to city with hopes
unable to afford a house, end up living in a shack
bring family and relatives from the village
A Bigger slum
Due to lack of affordable housing options, this cycle of migration leads up to the increasing number of slums in the city.
Site Wazirpur Industrial Area Shalimar bagh industrial area
azadpur sabzi mandi
site, 5.2 acre
Total Built-up Area 15705 sqm. 12%
Located in a big industrial estate.
This thesis aims at recognizing and understanding these basic needs of migrants and subsequently developing a solution which can be applied to todayâ€™s cities.
Surrounded by affluent residential colonies like Shalimar Bagh, Ashok Vihar, Model Town, Pitampura Proximity to wholesale markets like Azadpur and Adarsh Nagar.
Five points of interaction
Focus is on the elements where there can be a possibility of meeting the neighbors and further interaction. The whole idea is to develop a form/place which can induce an attitude towards the possibility of success.

Vision A quite and inclusive residential setting that complements the city and enhances the spatial, functional and environmental quality of the area.
Metro Pricinct Key points
East of kailash
• Parking spaces grossly inadequate for all transport systems ; cars, autos and cycle rickshaws • No universal access
Improve pedestrian and cycle routes throughout the site. Increase legibility by providing landmarks
Character - A place with its own identity. To retain the feel of plotted development in a high rise situation and maintain key routes.
From Kailash Col. Market & housing
• Ample green cover with a wide range of flaura • The street vendors and hawkers in Kailash Colony area have become part of the daily life. • The fruits/vegetables, tea stalls , cobblers and other basic supplies are available on the srteets and footpaths in and around this area. They must be regularized and preserved.

Private terraces, balconies, patios
Housing greens. Recreate gardens
Public park congregation space
Four floor of cluster court housing with housing tower on top. The center space between the housing at the bottom which does not get any light and ventilation to be used for parking.
Widening the main spine. Connecting the greens and separation of traffic modes. preserving existing trees.
Commercial zone as road edge leading to metro.
Institutional areas combined Housing blocks responding for efficiency. to context and greens.
Creating different degrees of Interaction, thus creating an hierarchy of opportunities for the users to interact. Making the best use of the Context, the adjoining Urban Village to ease site zoning.

Proposed Community center
Plotted residential Development
Hospital site area: 43800 sqm.
Merging the existing urban fabric of the Pochanpur village of the site, thus creating an organized organic form for the LIG people, which in turn responds to the context. Intent is to provide the user with a choice to choose the level of inclusivity he/she is comfortable with, freedom to choose their neighbors. Avoiding extreme cases of inclusivity and exclusivity.
Plotted residential Development
Area program Holding capacity : 4725 Site area: 43800 sqm. FAR: 200% Built-up area: 87600 sqm.
Creating a gradient of different economic groups on the site in order to create balance on a social level.

proposed community center
The Mass Shows the volume being dealt with. With a highly sensitive context, the design had to respond to the surrounding urban village and link it to the proposed facilities in the proximity
The Axis Created in response to connect the community center and the urban village. Will serve as the main pedestrian access way in the site creating opportunities for the users to interact, thus promoting inclusivity.
The Heights Modifying the heights of the blocks so as to achieve the required ground coverage and to maximize views. Raising the pedestrian level 3m so as to create a podium and to facilitate ground level parking.

Context in a Contest
Until recent times, architecture anywhere could be expected to reflect the local climate, resources and technology available. In this paper the aim was to understand context in architecture as it unfolds today. It questions its relevance or irrelevance in current times and finally, provides a different outlook on the subject.
EXCLUSIVE -Context is unique/regionalized. -Definite in time & space
DELIBERATE DEMOCRACY -Context is the lowest common denominator. -One size fits all
SUM OF ALL -A global context -Timeless, multiple solutions
