Urban scale and it´s complexities

TEAM: Moises Gamus, Michael Harrison.  FACULTY: Luis Falcon, Hemant Purohit Research on the reorganization of flows and forces that give shape to a city. Starting point: THE VOID (i.e. public space). Finding optimal walking distances between main public spaces (250 mts), a network of movility and interaction mingles through the built environment, emulating the current urban tissue which is a result of self organization… Learning from self organization, understanding its simple rules and its emerging complexity. Mumbai´s reality: TOO dense and still growing.  Scarcity of resources: Water, energy and waste management; conflict in movility and lack of personal living space. THE SITE: Saki-Naka / Asalfa Site Analysis SWOT Analysis Insolation  analysis and WindFlows ZONING DIAGRAM. Based on urban densitiy and context (natural and urban) ZONING DIAGRAM // DENSITY STUDIES Zoning Diagram Program organization based on distance from metro station and topographic conditions.
