CONCEPTUAL IDEA BEHIND THE PROJECT:

The village was produced with the idea that the residents were going to alter it in many
ways, therefore homes are freestanding.
Differently priced plans appeal to a wide variety of income levels.
The development supports Correas theory that low-rise architecture and high-density
planning are not contradictory approaches to
housing.

THE HOUSE FOOTPRINT


THE PLOT BOUNDARY

Despite the small size of the site, the architect


managed to endow every home with its own
private open-to-sky space and a shared courtyard.
The communitys site plan divides the units into
groups of 21, further subdividing them into sevenunit clusters.
The courtyard serves the necessity for a protected
family private communal space.

PRINCIPLES INVOLVED IN THE PROJECT:


There are seven cardinal principles demostrated by correa
Open to sky space
Incrementality
Pluralism
Participation
Income generation
Equity
Disaggregation
He wanted to offer the quality of life of a village with the sophistication of
The city.
Correa started making modules of houses where there is a space for
Incrementation which allowed them to modify their own houses.
He made clusters of seven houses, where in between there is a central
Courtyard increasing interaction and participation within the user group.
Correa clubbed three clusters of seven houses together and made a bigger
Courtyard of 12m x 12m.
He used traditional village material for construction (bricks, wooden shingles,
Stone blocks).

6 acre of land
Meant for 550 families
Approx. no. of people living are
2750
Assuming 5 people live in a house,
area per person is 2 sqmt.

Main Courtyard

1 unit = 8X8 =64sqmt.


No. of people per house = 5
1 module ( 7 units) = 35 no. of people
therefore,
area per person = 64/35 = 1.8sq.m 2sq.m

PROBLEMS FACED
The village originally had a high
concentration of artists. Today, less
than 10% of the residents are artists.
Rest of them work in service sector
Reasons for leaving their homes:
No provisions were made for the
common spaces in the center of each
cluster of houses.
No one was in charge of maintaining
them
Concept of keeping toilet block
outside was not appreciated
Some clusters of the village became
mini-slums
Studio spaces (72-76sqmt.) were too

small to work in and also to stay in.
