Dharavi A Case of Contested Urbanism - BUDD Report


A decade into the third Millennium, Mumbai finds itself representing India’s emerging economic position within the world forum. Efforts in coming to terms with this role and evolving market pressures have given way to an amplified local conflict over urban development and the ongoing challenge of monitoring population flux and subsequent informal settlement. Glorified aspirations of achieving ‘world class city’ status manifest themselves alongside daily struggles of over half the city’s inhabitants who live among sub-standard conditions under clouds of an indeterminate future.

With Dharavi as our focus, the following report is the result of an intense study into this contested landscape where dominant divergent voices jockey for position and control above the cries of genuine necessity and resistance. Here in, case study and field analysis revealed a diversified community operating amongst limitations of social disregard. Two complementary, yet distinct scenario proposals build off these findings, highlighting the capacities of people while addressing policy implications that in turn regulate urban transformation. Using elements of critical response and alternative solutions we seek to supplant a vision which calls for inclusive development of Dharavi within the larger framework of Mumbai’s prospective future.
