Informal settlements dominate considerably of the world’s emerging cityscape. The tense social and spatial situations they bring forth render most urban methods ineffective. Neither top-down preparing, defined by a technocratic strategy of ever larger infrastructure, nor bottom-up efforts, in the type of increasingly sophisticated neighborhood level projects, appear in a position to meet the challenges at the scale the developing metropolis demands. Can micro-scale interventions be created to achieve citywide approaches?

This conceptual divide is further exacerbated in Mumbai, exactly where slums that make up two-thirds of the population reduce by means of the complete island city in a sharp spatial divide. Attempts to address the dire challenges from, water safety to pollution and serious congestion, are limited to either the formal or informal settlements. MARS Architects has created a vision for a United Mumbai, the starting point for incorporating informal settlements as completely integrated parts of the formal city.

Over the coming weeks, stakeholder meetings will be held at the Guggenheim Lab Mumbai to talk about our ten proposed technologies, from wall systems to transport systems. Comply with us as an expanding program of architectural interventions turns slums into sustainable settlements, which in turn turn into the backbone of a United Mumbai.

Component 1: SPI MODEL
The foundation of this project is an in-depth study of Mumbai’s population density. Not merely mapping Mumbai’s infamous conditions in abstract terms but introducing a new methodology that much better represents the experience on the ground. The new metric, known as the Stacked Population Index (SPI), measures the density of men and women per quantity of offered floor surface. All of a sudden the accurate extents of Mumbai’s informal settlements can be observed: a yellow forest of towering densities covers the whole urban landscape. The harsh reality the city accommodates two thirds of its population on significantly less than a quarter of its residential surface, and yet urban plans for Mumbai largely ignore their existence.

Informal settlements dominate significantly of the world’s emerging cityscape. The tense social and spatial conditions they bring forth render most urban techniques ineffective. Neither best-down organizing, defined by a technocratic method of ever larger infrastructure, nor bottom-up efforts, in the kind of increasingly sophisticated neighborhood level projects, seem capable to meet the challenges at the scale the creating metropolis demands. Can micro-scale interventions be designed to attain citywide strategies?

Portion 1: SPI MODEL
The foundation of this project is an in-depth study of Mumbai’s population density. Not merely mapping Mumbai’s infamous conditions in abstract terms but introducing a new methodology that far better represents the knowledge on the ground. The new metric, known as the Stacked Population Index (SPI), measures the density of men and women per amount of obtainable floor surface. Abruptly the accurate extents of Mumbai’s informal settlements can be observed: a yellow forest of towering densities covers the complete urban landscape. The harsh reality the city accommodates two thirds of its population on less than a quarter of its residential surface, and yet urban plans for Mumbai mainly ignore their existence.
