Building Urban Eco-Communities: City as a Laboratory for Sustainability

In the current context of rapid urbanization affordability of housing, not only in money terms, but also in terms of the environmental impact, is a growing concern. 

There is a tug of war between the environment and development, with spatial exclusion and social segregation emerging as universal phenomena, affecting even developed countries. Design helps to achieve more with significantly less: better use of ‘human’ resources (intelligence, knowledge, time) can prevent depletion and deterioration of other natural resources. The key to building an affordable future is surely education; and not only increasing access to formal education, but prioritizing lifestyle issues and consumption patterns. We have to learn to discriminate between the necessary and the superfluous, so that cities not only survive, but thrive. 

This project is an opportunity to envision ‘Urban Eco-Communities’ trough integral rethinking of Architecture and Urban Design in the context of Auroville (India), both from a theoretical and practical approach, addressing environmental, social and economic sustainability holistically.

The course is organized around a series of lectures by visiting experts on new urban visions for diverse related topics. These will serve as inputs during the design process.
