Jugaad Urbanism: Resourceful Strategies for Indian Cities

Set in the radically uneven urban landscapes of Delhi, Mumbai, Ahmedabad and Pune, India, Jugaad Urbanism will explore how the energy of citizens “making-do” is translated by architects, urban planners, and governmental and nongovernmental entities into efficient and inventive strategies for sustainable urban growth. From energy generating spinning wheels to the extensive skywalks of Mumbai, the exhibition will highlight how “jugaad” interventions (a term in Hindi used to describe an innovative, resourceful approach) are challenging traditional spatial hierarchies and mechanistic planning principles.

The work of Indian artists, including Raqs Media Collective, will also be included in the exhibition, offering insights into the complex and oft cited “messy” urbanism of India. Curator is Kanu Agrawal and the exhibition design and graphics by Popular Architecture and Omnivore.

The opening is on February 10 at the . The exhibition will run until May 21. For more information, please click here.
