Sir J J College of Architecture and Nature Nurture Architects and Planners presents ‘Negotiating Accessible Spaces: Inclusion Keystone Project (N.A.S.I.K Project)’ – a month long exhibition at the Claude Batley Hall, Sir J.J. COA, Mumbai on February 1, 2018.
Experimenting with unique representation tools, the exhibition is designed to be easy to access and interpret. Based on the research and design interventions worked on by Architect Parul Kumtha and her studio NATURE NURTURE, the exhibition analyses the tools one needs to identify accessibility issues, while being able to provide solutions that go beyond mere guidelines. Covering multiple services, like transport, education, recreation, commerce and religious spaces, the exhibition attempts to provide a holistic view of accessible design processes, in order to facilitate an inclusive environment in buildings. The entire process will also be published as a book which chronicles the architect’s journey to answer the question, “How does one make an entire city accessible?” The Exhibition uses the Disabled Friendly Infrastructure Project undertaken for the city of Nasik as its sample study.
‘Negotiating Accessible Spaces: Inclusion Keystone Project (N.A.S.I.K Project)’ is part of Sir J.J.’s College Project, assisted by Prof. Mustansir Dalvi to allow students to explore and nurture unique idea’s as part of the college curriculum and enhance their design sensibilities. The insights gained through the College Project this year are being guided by Nature Nurture to provide an accessible ramp for the college and a tactile map for the Kala Ghoda Art Fest 2018. This month long exhibition and publication are the latest of several other periodic endeavors undertaken by Parul Kumtha and the students of Sir JJ COA, dating as far back as 2006.
