Abstract [en]

 The project is a residential area for migrant workers coming to Dharavi to

seek work. They are the invisible people of Dharavi, living and working in the

production sector, rarely mixing with other inhabitants.

By building up an extrovert area incrementally for, and not least with, the

migrant workers, they will gradually be integrated in the society of Dharavi.

Working in parallel with establishing a strong community and identity of

the area, and at the same time reaching out towards other areas to enable


The issue of flexibility and the temporary will be focused on without loosing

the identity or communal spirit of the area.
