Status: National Finalist
Organizer: Tata Tiscon
India will need 25 million affordables homes by 2030. A lot of these homes must cater to the economically weaker or regions that are transitioning from the rural to thr urban where self-owned housing plots are the norm. Framed Habitat is a housing proposal for rapidly urbanising tier 2 and tier 3 cities in India. We presented a detailed architectural and structural design proposal for homes that can be built and expanded by the inhabitants as their families grow. We presented a literal ‘framework’ of spaces and how these spaces can come together in multiple combinations such that the local climate can be taken into account.
