At the Center for Architecture, 536 LaGuardia Place
Curated by Kanu Agrawal
Opening Reception: 7 - 9 pm Thursday February 10, 2011.
Set in the radically uneven urban landscapes of Delhi, Mumbai, Ahmedabad and Pune, India, Jugaad Urbanism explores 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 highlights 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.
