Dynamic Balance is an urban conceptual framework proposal for Mumbai, India.
It aims at resolving the housing pressure on the city of Mumbai through an evolutionary process of introducing a hierarchy of multiple centers in the form of sustainable eco-island networks.
With the population of Mumbai speculated to reach 42 million by 2050, the efficiency of the Dynamic Balance model could reduce a household’s dependency on high-frequency urban living.
This would open up a new wave of semi-urban eco-island neighborhoods.
It is guided by a group of design principles employing applied technology to form an integrated community design, while also providing clean energy, water, and food in the proximity of your residence.
This form of transit oriented development also targets a higher standard of living for residents and deepened sense of community.
In short, it will provide a network of vital spare parts to a larger mechanism which is on the verge of breaking down. Source by Vardhan Mehta.
