An ex­hi­bi­tion on hous­ing in ur­ban and ru­ral In­dia — cu­rated by Rahul Mehro­tra, Ran­jit Hoskote and Kai­wan Me­hta — at­tempts to con­struct de­bates on sub­jects such as the ideas of home and home­less­ness, af­ford­abil­ity and ad­e­quacy, and the his­tory and out­comes of poli­cies and agen­cies that fa­cil­i­tate the pro­vi­sion of homes across seg­ments of so­ci­ety in the coun­try. A project by the Ur­ban De­sign Re­search In­sti­tute (UDRI) and the Ar­chi­tec­ture Foun­da­tion (AF), it en­cap­su­lates the hous­ing cri­sis and aims to cre­ate an in­te­grated database of case stud­ies, en­abling a com­pre­hen­sive anal­y­sis of the sit­u­a­tion.
