A Plastic Morphology for Mumbai

The project puts forth the idea of a new morphology of plastic bags for mumbai Floods. The particle of access: Plastic Bags is a cause and an aftermath of the floods, by creating in-deliberate clogging in the city. 

The aim is to create a protocol that works with the real time frame of seasons startng from summer to end of monsoon every year, and is reinforced by the incremental gesture of people putting plastic bags, at strategic locations.

The new morphology would thus be a real time interactions with people at micro level, to create a series of synchronized clogging in conjunction to the cities fabric, that woul then delay and redirect the process of flow of water to mitigate flood and conditions. 

The project creates various ground and wall conditions of deliberate clogging in the city to redirect and delay the process of water, during the flood. The cloggings are thus supported by the floating slabs, above the level of water, for people to carry on with their daily activities.

The unfolding of the event -floods is then followed by the process of unclogging armed by the recycling industries of People of Dharavi (Mumbai's Biggest Slum, where Mumbai's 85% recycling is held)

Therefore the entire system would thus help to resolve two problems a) Flash Floods b)Plastic Bags- which is a cause and after math of the event
