Un- Gendering the Everyday City
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 neighborhood. 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.
Visualisation and Concept. The student applied their learnings from previous exercises (of analysis and critical thinking), to the data provided to them for a common site in Delhi, to analyse the socio-spatial relationships on site and thus identify the problems that they will be solving through design. 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 analysis and ideation, represented using technically accurate drawings, analytical diagrams and rich perspectives. After designing, each student conducted a similar analysis on their proposed designs, in order to analyse their ability to successfully ‘un-gender’ the street.
