MULTIHABITAT-INDIA

MULTIHABITAT INDIA
A training project on construction and house improving in precarious human settlement by using local materials.
Drafting and editing a manual-book for people who lives in temporal settlements.

The aim of MultiHábitat India is to improve the habitability conditions of most needy people in Bangalore, and try to improve also other people’s conditions through all the knowledge generated, either at another time or in another place. The work is being carrying out, trough the collaboration between Poyecto áSILO, Arquitectura Se Mueve and NGO Grace.
This goal is presented against the backdrop of a complex scene in which is necessary to set strategies and action protocols that are intended to be extrapolated to other situations.
The project is being performed in a working framework based on the making ways of Proyecto áSILO. The collaborative working is one of them. For this reason, the beneficiaries are asked for their implication during the project developing; and besides, they will be able to act as spread agents. We are in a context that offers the following forces sum:

ΣACTIVESi = ΣRESULTANTSi
Σ [local architecture + reusing construction + process analysis + new technologies + socialcultural context + worthy living spaces] = Σ [alliance commitment between · (knowledge + people + organizations)]
We start the work wondering three main questions which help us to explain our intentions:
· What are the reasons that cause the presence of these localized and widespread slums at the same time in India?
· What can we do to improve the quality of life of the people who live there?
· Why did we make the decision of coming to India and “make this project up”?

We asked ourselves these questions to create the project bases. It was important to start here to discuss about cooperation concept, and introduce new ideas as well as open knowledge, open processes, making ways, co-working, etc. We have divided the main aim on the followings goals (objectives steps) to structure the work:
1.- Detect the reasons that cause the presence of the slums in the city.
2.- Bear in mind the local, climatic, social and economic conditions.
3.-Detect the achievable improvements according to the quality life on a daily life of a local population. It is necessary to analyse and re-think the habitat where these people live. Besides their houses, it is important the near surroundings, which is constituted of equipments and public spaces, shops and mobilities that connect them. It is essential to consider and analyse how this can affect the women and children population.
4.- Work with local NGDOs as partners with (whom) common objectives to be reached.
5.- Collaborate with Universities that support this type of training processes.
6.- Learn about housing construction or refurbishment.
7.-Draft a graphic manual for housing construction and refurbishment based on materials reusing.

Programme and phases of the project.

1- Agreement between NGODs, Universities and entities which are interested on this initiative. (WE ALREADY GOT COLLABORATOR ENTITIES!)
2.- Choice of working area according to our technical partners suggestions.. (AFTER ANALYSING THE SEVEN SLUMS WE VISITED, WE HAVE DECIDED TO WORK IN THANISANDRA, which is one of the most continual slums, and due to its characteristics it is also the most suitable as knowledge model/prototype)
3.- Analysis of the social, cultural, work, climatic, urban and architectural environment.
4.- Workshop: proposals to solve the problems we have detected between all the participants together. If possible we will carry out the design and construction of a housing prototype, which will be useful as learning and communicative/informative example for the participants of the workshop.
5.- Drafting of the graphic manual that gathers all the work that has been done to enable replication.
6.- Presentation of results.
7.- Workshops in Spain: these workshops will be arranged to show this project to people who may be interested on it. (universities, collectives, NGO, etc).
We are currently working on the development of the three first phases. After the analysis phase, the workshop about the slum will be held in collaboration with the university and the population from the area. We will work together to attempt to solve the identified problems. This is about learning one from other without forgetting the main goal (We await learning from one another without forget the main goal).
We are considering about five months work in India, afterwards we will start to draft the ilustrated manual (already mentioned) in English and Kannada that will gather the proposals to allow other people in similar conditions can use it.

In our opinion the practical-pedagogical task is one of the most important aspects of the projec, this is why we consider work as an integral project with all parties involved (local population, our working team, NGO staff and students from local and foreign universities).

Working places/bases ¿How do we work?
There are three working nodes: one of them is Bangalore with the working team formed by Javi, Bharathi and Shashi; a second one based in the Iberian Peninsula with Paula and Jose Milara, and the triangle is closed in Brighton with Patricia.

Main features

As we have already said, after one and half month of hard work in India, we have achieved two very important goals: a NGO as collaborative party and an intervention area. The slum where we are working is named Thanisandra. The inhabitants will benefit from the proposals and we will use them to create the pattern of the common problems (to apply in similar areas).

Why this is important

What does motivate us?
We want to set up a method based on the COLLABORATIVE LEARNING, and a protocol that allows this model to be exported to other similar places.
What moves us is the idea of creating knowledge that we consider can help people to decide the way they want to live. It is not about instructing or teaching people how they must inhabit, but rather to act as mediators between the current situation and the desired situation, which will be described by them.
We think our task is being a contributor with local people to improve or provide the format that gathers the life way that these people have already designed.

Rewards

COLLECTIVES RETURNS
We keep on learning at the same time that we keep on doing, and always trying to be accompanied by the shared knowledge: the use of a common bibliography, the inputs of the participants and all the experiences that can be found on the open source sites. Our project shares that philosophy, from our blog Multihábitat India we tell you step by step everything that has happened, and all documents generated will be shared to be downloaded or viewed:

1_ Indian Recipe Book: our experience is soaking up the atmosphere on the streets and local food, therefore we can enquire this special culinary world with all its Indian traditions. The meal is the most representative social event in a society, ingredients, cooking ways and eating, reveal us a whole context and way of understanding life.

2_Indian Culture Book: Our routes through the street life, our experience in a family atmosphere and the closeness with which we try to understand people, discovers us a world full of surprises that will not be less than fascinating to our eyes.

3_ Self-construction Manual/DIY Building Manual: at the same time we go into it and look at the slum more closely and look at the urban environment that has given its place, we are creating this manual.
In fact it has already been started, with reflections and notes that reflect the steps from our external gaze to a more used to it and on it will be added a valuable insights from other (knowledgeable) to enrich it. We will just try to suggest and advise to get a more comfortably way of living.

We add to all of this the experience and knowledge achieved, which means that we offer Advisory Services in developing "cooperation" projects. Through Multihabitat-India blog you can ask us questions about how to start collaborative processes in other countries. We will tell you how we have been approaching our doubts and fears, and how they have been overcome and strengthened the idea and project.
