Island in the City
Delhi, India



This project looks at how Delhi’s Urban Villages will negotiate transit-oriented development and smart city plans. It explores the possibility of surgically opening up these informal settlements to surrounding infrastructure to generate an immersive realm of connection between the city and settlement. Within this realm would exist an ecosystem of supportive infrastructure, functions and spaces oriented towards the younger demographic of Khirki, who occupy the precarious position of having to navigate these thresholds on a daily basis. It asks:

“How can technology, spatial design and policy restructuring be implemented to provide sustenance to the financial and cultural ethos of Delhi's informal settlements, whilst benefiting the city as a whole?”
