Project Summary

Town plan revitalization and urban development

This project targets the further development of Ulwe, a precinct of the world’s largest planned city of Navi Mumbai. The modernist master plan was developed in the 1970s and revised according to aspirations for a globalized urban development in the 1990s.

The Village, the City, and the Ecosystem reconsiders the monotonous past developments of the region that led to a rapid transformation of the area with little consideration of the existing landscape.
