The studio is to develop a housing strategy for
the city to expand choices of affordable housing
to all income groups. With a multi-dimensional
approach to the city and how efficiently to
address the issue of housing unaffordability in
its specific land and labor market. The studio
focused on framing policies, legislations and
regulations, also by reforming the present
policies that will enable markets to generate
adequate, affordable, and decent housing stock.
Also by making state to enable and provide
assistance to households, living in substandard
informal and formal housing who lack access to
basic service and live in unhygienic conditions,
basically who are not catered by markets to
access decent affordable housing.
One such strategy where state act as enabler and provider is “In-situ Slum redevelopment”. Helps in formalizing the existing slum settlements on high potential land by the denotification process and facilitate the poor, without interrupting their livelihood, with the inclusion of private participation.
