COLLECTIVE DESIGN PRACTICE

Growing Fresh Air in Dharavi

A collaboration with organisation Fresh & Local, this research project explored the potential for air cleaning plants to be integrated into the home through participatory design practices. As a partnership between SNEHA and Fresh & Local, a community of women living in Dharavi were invited to think about space saving solutions to improve wellbeing inside and outside the home. Working with the Kumbharwada potter community in Dharavi, we developed 3 prototypes: Fresh Air for One, Living Screen and Air Cleaning Tiles as interventions that were exhibited as part of the Dharavi Biennale 2015. The research was funded by UCL Grand Challenges.
