description

This thesis, set in Mumbai, is an exploration of experience to a spatial setting, where the urban environment is understood as an experience which has an emotional stimulus to understand what is necessary to facilitate urban happiness and wellbeing within the work-live paradigm in the socially incoherent city life. The analysis led to the relevance of ‘Pause to Interact’ in the daily work-live paradigm that constricts all of us.

The research concludes at the study of developing Lower Parel station precinct as a transit oriented nexus which could improve the eudemonic well-being of the precinct, and trigger a positive balance to the city at large.
