Historically, cities have become the most vulnerable to climate change, triggering a new revolution in 2030. The year manifests metropolitan cities such as Mumbai leaning towards an urban bloom, mending our relationship with the planet and each other, visualizing streets as celebratory spaces of respite, recreation, learning and above all revolutionizing towards sustainability and net-zero strategies.


With the dense verticality that the city inhabits, the streets now move beyond ground mobility, as elevated street networks intertwine in the built environment creating a network of interconnected green open spaces under the ‘carbon credit’ umbrella.


In 2030, nature works in tandem with our daily movements, with possibilities of flexible public transportation, shared mobility and less dependency on private automobiles.


Solar-driven multipurpose vehicles are used as kiosks and co-working spaces to help create circular economies in the built environment keeping the community at its fore. This reality resolves towards a long-term impact through small scale interventions, creating streets that are resilient to climate change and act as an adaptive system for creating an engaged and interactive neighbourhood.


Through the project, the Everyday is reconfigured as a democratic social space with the streets being their voices.
