Uday Goswami talks about Social Cohesion in Modern Neighbourhoods.
Continuing the conversation on architectural epistemology of collective housing in urban India, Uday Goswami talks about Social Cohesion in Modern Neighbourhoods. Considering the limited availability of resources, it is essential to build compact cities. However, the process of densification must not be detrimental to livability. What is density and how do we measure it? How is density perceived by the human eye? How do we read a high density, medium density or low density development, rather what is it to live in different density situation? Is residential architecture a physical manifestation of density alone or can architectural interventions modulate the perception of density and maximize human livability?
