Self-Sufficient Revival of Recreational Garden in Affordable Housing Development

Sherebano Safdari, Manoj Parelkar, Roshni Udyavar Yehuda


Abstract: Urbanization has resulted into shrinking of recreational open spaces to accommodate more infrastructure and development. And, to provide 'housing for all', affordable housing developments are being promoted. To utilize the land to its maximum, the authorities increase Floor Space Index and decrease the recreational open spaces in such type of housing development. The population living in such housing is not affluent enough to maintain and enhance this small piece of land given to them for recreation. The paper is an attempt to review the recreational spaces in affordable housing with Mumbai as a context, and cost and maintenance as a parameter for its sustenance.
