    Recovered Foreshore in India

    At the urban scale, the proposal decentralizes the docking and market activity of the city, concentrating it around the fishing settlements. The Koliwadas become new centralities in a scheme that seeks to create connections between Mumbai’s central mobility railway spine and the city’s west waterfront. This strategy tackles problems derived from commuting distances and unhealthy fishing practices. Then, the project focuses on Mahim Koliwada, creating three main transitional pieces.

    An interface with water protects the village from the flooding season and collects waste by recovering the mangrove’s ecosystem of the Mithi River. Docking and farming happen in this zone. An interface with the city links the settlement to the neighborhood throughout a local fishing market, community kitchen, and internet café. A transversal infrastructural piece resolves the edge with the adjacent public space, allows for fish cleaning and drying together with workshops and a community center.
