URBANXCHANGER, DELHI 2015

2015, Delhi, with FAR Belin and Anagram Delhi

The urbanxchanger project emerged as a cross-city, cross-geographic, and cross-disciplinary project mentored by Ute E. Weiland at the Alfred Herrhausen Society. The idea was to bring the experiences of community initiatives that either won or received a special mention through the Urban Age Award together. Thus, the curatorial initiative identified local offices in the cities of Sao Paolo, Rio de Janeiro, Mexico City, Delhi and Berlin to come together and work with one community initiative in these cities and one in Berlin. In the specific case of Delhi, the office of Anagram was brought together with the Berlin based office FAR to work with the peripheral community of Sangam Vihar in the Southern sector of Delhi. The architects worked with a local NGO CURE. Their design interventions sought to tackle the invisibility of this community from the masterplan of Delhi through strategically located Google pins. A number of activities and interventions were planned under these pins which tackled the issue of ecology, distancing, and  housing in this settlement.
