Migrant Housing - Cluster, Organisation and Development

the studio is premised on the study of the history and development of migrant inhabitation and housing, and the development of a design to suit the needs of a specific user group (working migrant communities in the mill compound area Ahmedabad). the initial exercises were focused around the development of a cluster organization based on linked and stacked modules, the same modules which were then taken ahead as singular units in the development/organization of a larger housing scheme within a zoned area of approx 6000-7000 sq.m in the monogram mills compound area,all done with specific responses to the selected communities.
