The 2009/2010 studio, which continues the previous year’s theme of the Remaking of Mumbai, focuses on key issues found in the heart of the city. With continued support from the CTBUH and the Remaking of Mumbai Federation, six pairs of students developed real-world projects in a historical neighborhood known as the ‘C-ward’ in southern Mumbai. An emphasis was placed on cultural, physical, and environmental sensitivity to the site, and the Indian way of living.
The students began their project with a field visit to the site in Mumbai in late January 2010, and attended the CTBUH Mumbai Conference in early February, where they advanced their knowledge of Mumbai and architecture to better address the problems throughout the city. During the field visit the students also collaborated with local architecture students from the Sir JJ College of Architecture in Mumbai who had recently completed a similar studio study.
