AUROVILLE (INDIA) WORKSHOP
Feb 2018. Workshop in the city of Auroville in India from which the Welcoming City project arose. A few weeks in which we felt a bit more about the city and we investigated together with our teachers and the Indian architect Anupama Kundoo the future of the city.
We had working sessions, visits and interviews with people from the city. As well as meetings with people who led this unique Indian city and presentations of the projects in the city assemblies.
We had the incredible opportunity to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the city.
Our project was based on the idea that Auroville is a city inhabited by citizens who live according to a series of very clear values. However, there is no physical place where these values are taught and instilled in the potentially future inhabitants of Auroville.
Our proposal aims to meet this need by generating a building that newcomers to the city can go to to live a full experience in terms of the formation of these values.
To do this, we propose a structure in which habitats of sensations occur that the user can inhabit according to their needs. At all times we rethink the concept of living and try to break with the conventions of housing developed so far.
