'How to Build an Indian House' focuses on one of Mumbai’s and India’s perennial and most daunting questions: mass housing. It documents, analyses, and represents robust examples of different housing types in the city. Along with the documentary drawings and photographs, Sameep Padora developed a series of analytical models in order to understand spatial organisation and infrastructure in residential building typologies. The cases studied here range from residential typologies in Mumbai, such as the chawls (originally workers’ housing that has morphed into vibrant communities), to more hybrid examples such as the Swadeshi Market, which demonstrates an interesting multiuse building.
