Massive urbanization has triggered extensive development and redevelopment, encouraging the construction, reconstruction, and demolition of numerous built structures and affecting the occupants of those structures. Consequently, this has resulted in a large amount of waste generation, the extensive use of natural resources, and the creation of pollution that poses a negative impact on the environment.
The thesis “FROM NO WHERE TO NOW HERE” comprehensively explores the environmental impact of current construction practices, proposing alternatives for a carbon-free, waste-free future. It culminates in a proposal to construct Mori Public School in Mahim using eco-friendly techniques, minimizing environmental impact during construction, demolition, and occupancy. This initiative serves as a case study, prototype, and module, championing sustainable alternatives in architecture.
The project draws insights from literature and case studies to outline a sustainable design framework with guidelines and a material inventory, embracing an integrated approach. The framework’s application in designing Mahim Mori Road Municipal School is detailed in the provided content.
The ultimate goal is to nurture a carbon-free, ecologically sound environment, ensuring enduring ecological well-being.
