Harvard University Graduate School of Design will host a workshop on Mumbai titled: Mumbai Workshop: Redeveloping Mumbai's Back Bay.
The work in Mumbai focused on South Mumbai, the nerve center of India's financial institutes and the hub of formal commercial activity for the city. The landscape of South Mumbai is an amalgam of historic districts, contemporary business districts, the city's most expensive real estate, and slums — all juxtaposed in extremely close proximities. The area, which is considered some of the most valuable and land in the world, is contested by long-term fishing villagers, slum dwellers, neighboring high end apartment owners, government, commercial and business interests.
