Despite the large scale of migration in absolute numbers of people involved and city’s long history of population and labour mobility, migration has rarely been reliably responded architecturally in the city. It’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.

This thesis aims at recognizing and understanding these basic needs of migrants and subsequently developing a solution which can be applied to today’s cities.

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.

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.

Ease of movement - A place that is easy to get to and move through.

Quality of the public realmCreating a green network that is continuous and open. Differentiate between “high density” and crowding.

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.

Design Development

Widening the main spine. Connecting the greens and separation of traffic modes. preserving existing trees.

Commercial zone as road edge leading to metro.

Urban Design


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.

Merging identities

Adaptive inclusivity

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.

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.





The Blocks Imposing the grid on the site and creating staggered blocks with terraces at intermediate levels, Bio- Atriums, sufficient circulation spaces

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

Kalpa, a village in Himachal Pradesh, India which has retained its original character till now. It has been declared model heritage tourist village by Indian government. The aim of this settlement Study was to helps us understand the architecture, social aspects, culture of the place. How a settlement grows and functions. Also, in the process help the villagers understand the need and importance of the kind of architecture which they have been using, Since in this village the newer constructions were following typical city architecture.
