Elevated Informal Housing
Jan Paolo Masangkay
To the East of the Red fort and on the floodplain of the Yamuna River are clusters of informal settlements. The communities living in this area have been subject to the seasonal water changes that the Yamuna has during the monsoon season. This leads the people to constantly migrate from the floodplain to the side of the roads and highway, which provide a poor living condition and quality of life. This intervention looks to help mitigate this problem of flooding and housing in this area, as it creates connected spaces that can be used during any season, even when the monsoon is at its highest point.
