Andrew Tindsley,
Director, BDP, London

People adapt to places and places need to adapt to change. Such transformations may be brought about by new technologies, demographics or land uses, but as in present day Mumbai, the forces at play are not always in harmony.  Positive change is of course possible and this presentation reflects on how by looking back as well as thinking forward we can understand what works (and what doesn’t) in creating a new vision. Whatever the nature of this vision, experience indicates that it should reflect on history and context, and be founded on the desires of its community to create a successful, sustainable environment with direction and opportunity.
