Abstract [en]

Women in Dharavi have little social space except for their homes, in contrast to the menwho seem to be everywhere in the public space. If the status of women are to increase, theyalso need access to the public space.This project focuses on the interaction between women in common space in connectionto the homes and the public spaces in between. Common yards/gardens in between theunits are shared by four households creating a semi-private space. As the men are working,the women at home will take care of the garden and have a possibility to socialize withwomen from the other households.These common gardens have a clear visual connection to the public spaces, which areconnected to different play areas (playground does not seem to be the right word). As thewomen take their children to kindergarden or school they pass through the public space and can stay there to watch the children while they are playing. The children gives the women areason to be in public space. The women gives each other a reason to stay.
