A Krisha


Stree(t) Plaza

The project proposes an ungendered reimagined street plaza in the site of Veeriyampalayam, Coimbatore, Tamilnadu. This comes from the learnings of research, observations and gendered socio-spatial analysis patterns within the private realm of our individual homes to the public realms of various sites such as Kerala, Ahmedabad and Telangana. Through various exercises which were done, the findings reveal that the right to leisure in public spaces lies with men and also a relation between leisure, purpose and familiarity for women. The project aims at bringing in a spatial design intervention which would inform a new possible social structure to the site where women will be able to negotiate with the public space and own them and hence bringing in a sense of independence.
