Un-Gendering the Everyday City
Un- Gendering the Everyday City: Process
Stage 1: Mapping and Analysis. Students mapped sites at different scales, while recording gendered activity patterns in each. The scales were - a street from memory, their homes, and their selected sites in Ahmedabad. The drawings were then analysed, and abstractions produced with respect to a specific set of learning outcomes at each different scale.
Stage 2: Socio-Spatial Analysis. Students began to organize their mapping and analysis into a concise narrative while producing a detailed repository of social behaviors that play out on the street and the spatial elements that enable them, with respect to women, especially of lower economic groups.
Stage 3: Visualisation and Conceptualisation: The students made collages to create a utopian vision for the city, and strategise their intent for un-gendering the street.
Stage 4: Design Development and Representation. The design thus emerges as a product of analysis and ideation, represented using technically accurate drawings, analytical diagrams and rich perspectives.
Stage 5: Demonstrating Un-gendering: After designing, each student conducted analysis on their proposed designs with respect to their initial research and demonstrated their ability to successfully ‘un-gender’ the street.
