In 2012 I was awarded the Architectural Research Travel Award (ARTA) from the Knowlton School of Architecture at The Ohio State University. I spent several weeks that summer in Mumbai and New Delhi, studying urban form across history, regions, and class strata.
During the fall semester of 2012 I was asked to do a short presentation of my findings to the school, and these are the resulting slides. When the video of the presentation and the talk which accompanied this powerpoint has been made available by the school I will post the link here.
Skills and knowledge learned/improved upon: Project proposal writing, research, independent research, public speaking and presenting, international planning, planning history, urban morphology, Indian housing, slums, class disparity in city form, Kevin Lynch’s five elements of city legibility.
