We are considering a scenario where the role play of this building is no longer of a bus stop. 3.2 Interiority: Volume + Aperture STAGE 1: ANALYSIS OF ARTWORK STAGE 2: ITERATIONS OF INTERPRETATIONS Produce a series of iterations of your subjective interpretation of the rules derived by you from the given artwork. STAGE 3: CHANGING THE INTERIORITY AT THE SITE: Demonstrate your design using the principles extracted from the given artist to modulate the current Interiority of the given site. 3.3 Expansion: Addition + Connection Adding on to the work done in 3.1 and 3.2, we are in the third and last stage where we are working with the idea of expansion. Investigate through this exercise, the method, position and language of the expansion. It shall affect the given site, its form 14

Social Incubation Centre

4.1 Building up a Narrative

The Plug-In Program will transform the Ahmedabad crowd by providing them exposure to the following . Support

The Best Countries to be a Social Entrepreneur, a 2016 report by Thomas Reuters Foundation, India ranked 14th, ahead of China, Australia and just behind Germany. What was more promising was that India ranked fifth in terms of ease of access to investment funding and eighth for grant funding. Social entrepreneurship is heading in the right direction with incubators bringing out the potential of social entrepreneurs across the country. While this goes to show that social entrepreneurship is heading in the right direction and with good momentum, there are still many roadblocks to social innovation. Funding, as clearly seen, is not a key problem. What causes our desi entrepreneurs to bog down is lack of public awareness (India ranks 34th in public understanding of what social entrepreneurs do), difficulty in working with the government, finding right talent, and scaling sustainably. The Social Incubation center is a place where people working in different fields throughout the Ahmedabad can come contributing to the civic projects that AMC is carrying out providing their inputs. It will lead to more involving and awareness among the people of Ahmedabad. Its also a place where skilled individuals or communities are provided a platform to get commissions on projects they can work on hence generating revenue and place of opportunities for the people of Ahmedabad.

. Awareness . Impact . Change . Learn The main aim of this program is to allow the full, rich and wonderful diversity of Ahmedabad People to flourish in complete freedom, while yet achieving an inner unity and experiencing a unified and harmonious society. and have accepted to work out their differences in a new and higher way, changing themselves instead of trying to change others as they seek to realize the ideal of human unity in diversity.

The Program aims at reclaiming public space means making busy areas amenable to human interaction. So that It allows seemingly disparate individuals to find themselves in close enough proximity to converse, learn from one another, and create community. Also Participating in public space means giving ourselves permission to look up from our screens and connect with people of different generations or different backgrounds. It eases the isolation and anonymity inherent in busy areas. The motivation for becoming a member to this program is that it is the best way to learn the practice (of innovation). The best way to access the knowledge is to interact with the community. What holds them together is a common sense of purpose and a real need to know what each other knows.

The Program achieves it by1.Envolving various Communities from throughout Ahmedabad 2.Envolve Individuals facing issues by educating them. 3.Publick and private Partnerships

accepting and allowing the full, rich and wonderful diversity of mankind to flourish in complete freedom, while yet achieving an inner unity and experiencing a unified and harmonious society. Sometimes the human mix seems too much, too complex, as hidden tensions rise to the surface or old behaviour patterns take over, but actually it is perfect, just as it should be, if Auroville is to be a valid experiment representative of humanity as a whole. and have accepted to work out their differences in a new and higher way, changing themselves instead of trying to change others as they seek to realise the ideal of human unity in diversity.
