A GIANT HOME: Sense of Belonging within the Streets

The project proposes reimagination of an ungendered street of a site in Vytilla, Kochi, Kerala. The Giant Home tries to challenge the lack of sense of belongingness for women in the streets. Since the learnings from the site mappings and various literature sources reveal a strong correlation between the ability to experience leisure on the street and the perception of belongingness, the project addresses the challenge through an overall network of anchors that are interdependent on each other and together enable women to feel ownership, to seek leisure. The project thus begins to question could spaces begin to impact social behavior instead of the normally understood norm of social impacting spatial.
