Employed chipsets

A couple of nice china prototype images I found:

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

This conceptual divide is additional exacerbated in Mumbai, where slums that make up two-thirds of the population cut by way of the entire island city in a sharp spatial divide. Attempts to address the dire challenges from, water security to pollution and severe congestion, are restricted 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 fully integrated parts of the formal city.

More than 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. Follow us as an expanding program of architectural interventions turns slums into sustainable settlements, which in turn turn out to be 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 circumstances in abstract terms but introducing a new methodology that far better represents the experience on the ground. The new metric, called the Stacked Population Index (SPI), measures the density of men and women per amount of obtainable floor surface. All of a sudden the true extents of Mumbai’s informal settlements can be observed: a yellow forest of towering densities covers the entire urban landscape. The harsh reality the city accommodates two thirds of its population on much less than a quarter of its residential surface, and however urban plans for Mumbai largely ignore their existence.

Informal settlements dominate considerably of the world’s emerging cityscape. The tense social and spatial conditions they bring forth render most urban strategies ineffective. Neither best-down organizing, defined by a technocratic approach of ever larger infrastructure, nor bottom-up efforts, in the form of increasingly sophisticated community level projects, look in a position to meet the challenges at the scale the establishing metropolis demands. Can micro-scale interventions be designed to accomplish citywide techniques?

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

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