Post Industrial Landscape

Partner: Design Cell, Kamala Raheja Vidhyanidhi Institute of Architecture   The project aimed to understand the location of Mumbai in the global economic shift from manufacturing to services. It documented industrial sites and districts through mapping and photography, conducted interviews with workers and managements, and through discussions and pedagogy, explored the emergence of new economic geographies in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region. The project focused on the textile mill districts of Central Mumbai, the Bombay Port Trust and Harbour, and the IMAX-Bhakti Park development in Wadala as "landscapes" for understanding wider transformations of space, technology and urban experience in post-industrial Mumbai.
