Rise of the Cooperative
Episode III of Oikopolis
While cooperative housing societies in India may not have continued in spirit, they have continued to exist in form. This has made it possible for existing residents to participate in the re-development of their housing societies. In this studio, we wish to explore possibilities of what cooperative housing societies 'could be' if the space for innovation created by this 'participation' were explored. We wish to pursue this possibility given the contingencies that developers and architects face.
