studio mumbai architects focuses on the unauthorized architecture of mumbai with their installation ‘in-between architecture’, currently on show at the v&a museum in london. the project is part of the exhibit ‘1:1 – architects build small spaces’ and located among the cast sculptures in the v&a cast court. the structure is directly based on a dwelling that is crammed into narrow urban allotments located right behind the studio’s building. while quite tiny, the original structure houses a family of eight. though seen as parasitic, these homes offer intelligent design solutions in a city where space is scarce. like its neighbouring sculptures, ‘in-between architecture’ is a cast of the space in mumbai. however the architects are not trying to replicate the building exactly, instead their new version aims to distill the poetic qualities of the space.

  • It is wonderful, simply as an attraction space and part of the exhibition. Takes on a whole new significance when you understand its meaning.
