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:
The project aimed at designing a space which would help create job opportunities and at the same time serve as a community centre for the local people of Dharavi.

JANAADHAR-is an interface connecting Mumbai and the aspirations of Dharavi. It provides a platform for people of Dharavi to showcase their talent and eventually would help them grow.
The structure was designed keeping in mind three cue words that reflected Dharavi in some way namely Growth, Staggered and Fluid. The programs are added and designed such that they would not only increase the development in Dharavi, but at the same time, be something that these people have been practicing for a long time. These included Metal fabrication, Pottery, Tailoring and Dying.
Along with these, there are exhibition spaces and studios wherein the locals would work on skill development and also make a revenue out of the same.
Janaadhar is thus a well thought out space which forms a connection between the city of dreams and dharavi in order to help them progress.

The project helps highlight the nuances of designing, keeping in mind the needs of people it will cater to and it's response to the site.
