What: The Charles Correa Foundation is curating a National Architecture Workshop for young architects and students of architecture & design with the intent to explore and ideate on the issue of housing in urban densities. DWELL 2014 will explore the many dimensions of designing a dwelling – a most basic unit – in an urban context. 6 teams will ideate on designing a unit in 6 urban centres of varying scales, capacities, character and climate.
Delhi, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Chennai, Ahmedabad and Panaji are the six Urban Centers selected as laboratories. 6 Teams lead by 6 practicing architects (mentors) from these cities will work on the design of a unit. Each team will have 6 People. 1 Practising Architect, 2 Young Graduates and 3 Senior Undergraduate Students of architecture / design / planning (4th and 5th Year).
Ahmedabad = Riyaz Tayyibji (Anthill)
Bengaluru= Gaurav Roy Choudhury (Gaurav Roy Choudhury Architects)
Mumbai = Zameer Basrai (Busride)
Chennai = Mahesh Radhakrishnan (MOAD)
Delhi = Madhav Raman (Anagram Architects)
Panaji = Harsh Patel (Playgroup Studio)
This will open the discussion to a spectrum – from a need for densification to a limit on saturation. All ideas will be documented and chronicled by the Charles Correa Foundation for further research and action.
