About the Project

Urban areas face problems of matching demand and supply of affordable housing stock. The need of the hour is to explore and develop design innovations in products and processes for assisting decision making at various levels and ensuring a more efficient and equitable supply of land, shelter and services in the city core.

The project has developed a Web based Rapid Appraisal Toolkit of housing stock in transforming neighbourhoods, by capturing physical and socio-economic data within regulatory contexts and generating transformation scenarios based on a cumulative probabilistic model.
