PROJECT SUMMARY

Megacity Skeleton

Stakeholder participation for urban up-grading

This 2-step micro intervention upgrades informal settlements in megacities and avoids slum-clearance by authorities. Planned first as a participatory initiative – not top-down – narrow spatial “voids” are introduced within high-density residential areas to bring air and light into the neighbourhood’s building fabric.
