361° CONFERENCE 2010 - Design & Informal Cities

Exploring alternative prospects of spatiality and integration of concerns such as economy, functionality, informality in urban fabric and typology, the fourth edition of the conference concentrated on serious aspects of informal settlements and its scope of improvisation or expansion. To understand the implications of the issues, the discussants participated in a walk through Dharavi, Asia’s largest slum. An icon lecture by Pritzker Laureate Richard Meier concluded the conference.
