As it continues to die a death of a thousand cuts, the last chunk of undeveloped ground in Miami is to be preserved through a theatrical sequence of carved out pockets.

The 21st Century Urban Park, Miami

M.Arch. Spring Semester


The sequencing of 16 ‘episodes’ is following the model of theme parks and golf courses as an internal bulwark against the ever-present pressures of the encroaching city.

Investigation: components, sub assemblies, super assemblies

Each of the episodes presents itself as a self-contained world amplifying the strange conversations between the natural and the artificial in contemporary life.

Episode 12

The 21st Century Urban Park


As the Appalachian Trail against all odds preserved a continuous band of undisturbed wilderness across the eastern coast, could a chain of artificial objects leave undisturbed the last bits of wilderness left in Miami?

The project takes the conventional notion of ecology further, and establishes it as an ecosystem. The model seeks to create interaction within the natural ecology (water, and land) and man made ecology ( Built form). The interactions established would thus create new ecosystems, through interactions and generate a new morphology for the waterfront of Williamsburg.

Pre Event Scenario- Deliberate Clogging

A Plastic Morphology for Mumbai

niriti porwal

M.Arch. Fall Semester


Pre Event The new morphology would work in the real time frame, reinforced by the incremental gesture of people putting plastic bags which creates a series of synchronized clogging, that would then delay and redirect the process of flow of water. During Event The project creates various ground and wall conditions of deliberate clogging. The cloggings are thus supported by the floating slabs, above the level of water, for people to carry on with their daily activities.

During Event- Scenario1, Floating Slab

Post Event The unfolding of the event -floods is then followed by the process of unclogging armed by the recycling industries of People of Dharavi (Mumbai’s Biggest Slum, where Mumbai’s 85% recycling is held) Therefore the entire system would thus help to resolve two problems a) Flash Floods b)Plastic Bags - which is a cause and after math of the event Scenario 2- Wall & Ground Condition
