by Georgina Johnston 23 November 2020

It documents, analyses and represents robust and ingenious examples of different housing types in the city. Along with the documentary drawings and photographs, international award winning author and architect Sameep Padora developed a series of analytical models in order to understand the unique spatial organisation and infrastructure in these residential building typologies. These Mumbai typologies challenge architects, planners and designers everywhere to test their imagination in thinking about affordable housing.
