Formatted Abstract/Summary
In as much as the awareness of the growth of urban populations has deviated our attention away from the rural settings and towards the city (a sort of celebratory victory of urbanites versus peasants), so it seems the urban development associated with this growth focuses our attention on a celebration of the products of this development (housing towers, commercial malls, airports, etc.) rather than in its effects on its users and dwellers. This paper - and the academic programme that it describes - seeks to frame and understand the “architectural interventions and transformations” announced in the subtitle of this Conference, as they occur in the context of Indian cities. I offer a framework that seeks to disconnect the concept debated, the Urban Project, from the political and financial interests of authorities or developers, and to focus instead on the understanding of the civil society as client.
