Kinetic City

Emergent Urbanism in India

0 out of 5

The increasing concentrations of global flows have exacerbated the inequalities and spatial divisions of social classes. In such a context, an architecture or urbanism of equality in an increasingly inequitable economic condition requires a deeper exploration – to find a wide range of places to mark and commemorate the cultures of those excluded from the spaces of global flows. These do not necessarily lie in the formal production of architecture; rather, they often challenge it. Here the idea of a city is an elastic urban condition—not a grand vision, but a “grand adjustment.”
