Segregational Model Based – Urban Simulation and Interractive Tool
An early experiment on physical boundaries in self organising urban contexts, using Thomas Schelling’s segregational models as the theoretical framework.The project is based in Mumbai and at this stage is experimenting with self organisation and bottom up behaviours related to infrastructure and top down planning decisions.
Interractive data input in terms of the digital design tool development is explored through motion recognition using a modified digital camera and high visibility tape.
