The city of Mumbai in India is undergoing dramatic transformations and the forces driving these changes in the city are forcing new modes of urbanism and urbanization to be realised. In particular, social, economic and political forces are aggressively pushing the evolution of an urban form in which local architects and planners are struggling to qualitatively intervene. This collection of essays and writings examine both the status quo in current developments while exploring stimulating projects that are emerging on the margins that provide hope for future directions of urbanisation in the city.
