Competition Brief:
The aim of the competition is to develop a place making project that will act as a center for change and empowerment in the heart of dharavi.
Narrative:
Rivicon, an abode of knowledge, innovation, skills and most importantly, dreams is crammed with aspiring souls and minds. It is an iconic complex culminating the talent of the people of Dharavi. The complex is designed keeping in mind the needs and demands of the various programmes developed for the people while providing highly endeavored breathing space in the density of slums.

The visual accessibility to the performance area warmly invites the guests from the main road with its grand roof on the northern facade. Along the galli of Dharavi, a promenade showcases artistic and skilful artworks. The night school gives an opportunity to the illiterate working class to learn, to read and write while the space merges with the library as reading space during the day time. The inherent traditional skills of textile, carpentry, leather tanning and pottery are enhanced by the workshop spaces while the studios enhance the art skills. The start-up knacks of the young enthusiasts are supported by the incubation centre with a multi-functional meeting room. All in all, the community-empowerment centre brings the hope and medium to bring up the talent of Dharavi
