Participants: 14 students


A group of multi-disciplinary students were led by professors Alan Berger, Toni Conchetti and Rahul Mehrotra along with doctoral candidate Shiben Banerji to conduct fieldwork and independent research in and around the city, especially focused on the Bay of Mumbai.

In addition, students were also engaged in a day long workshop and conference organized by UDRI where multiple stakeholders were brought together to discuss the emergent form of the city and the most crucial questions regarding its future.

Student research findings as well as design proposals are documented in the book “Landscape and Urbanism”, which offers multiple options for imagining the future of the Mumbai Region and the Bay.
