Abstract [en]

The project is about improving the street life of one of Dharavi’s main roads; Station Road.

Today the street has a formal layout; with a sidewalk and two car lanes, without any

response to what is actually happening on the street. The street vendors occupy a large

portion of the supposed sidewalk, forcing inhabitants to stay inside and pedestrians out into

the road, making traffic crawl along.

Therefore the goal of the project is to create spaces where positive exchange can take

place between these different actors of the street, letting them coexist within the same

space as today. By looking at the relation between street vendors & pedestrians and street

& residences I’ve tried to create an architecture that invites to a certain behaviour without

enforcing spatial rules. Through my intervention I want to promote the dynamic street life

that is going on already today, but at the same time the intervention should improve the

climatic situation of the street as well as being a response to the rich culture of Dharavi. This

is my way of organizing the chaos there, making life a little bit easier.
