02 X DESCRIPTION
Reincarnation is the philosophical or religious concept in which a living being starts a new life in a different physical body or form after his biological death. It is also called rebirth or transmigration and it’s a part of the Samsāra doctrine of cyclic existence.
The urban pattern of the city of Mumbai with such a great historical and cultural background should experience the similar process of rebirth saving the spirit of the place with its unique context and traditions.
The project proposes new typologies and mixed use housing borrowing forms and colours from national Indian dwellings but taking into consideration modern rapid urbanization. In addition, modules from different typologies are installed into a continuous flexible structural network, which provides Koli and Worli with all the possible scenarios that the inhabitants can create themselves.
The new development grows from the Worli Koliwada village, saving all the routes. The territory is divided into two parts, which are flexible, rising and transforming Worli mixed use housing with their own facilities for the neighbourhood: the school, public library, a pool, a garden and the floating village of Koli with all the facilities for fishery and fish trade such as the marina, fish farming.
In the centre of the territory, the new historical and cultural building appears combining all the territory and serving as a museum and a touristic and public route, opening spectacular views and leading to the new Hindu temple.
Recreation Network creates new open public spaces such as the new fish market, observatory, public squares, open cinema, public swimming pool and the scene to involve both tourists and citizens.
