3x3 developed and executed a series of engagement strategies that used participatory action research and design thinking to rejuvenate underutilized open space and a rainwater harvesting system in a rapidly developing urban village of Delhi.
The Delhi Urban Art Commission (DUAC) initiated a three-dimensional study for local area plans in several wards, unauthorized colonies, and urban villages in Delhi. The ward of Lado Sarai sought to convert a two-phase study for urban improvements into an action plan for on the ground execution with local stakeholders. The proposal specifically looked at open space improvements to alleviate unsanitary conditions, traffic congestion, and lack of resident amenities.
3x3 conducted interviews to pinpoint quality of life issues, underutilized open space, and opportunities for rainwater harvesting. DUAC, local authorities, and community members convened at a stakeholder meeting to align development activities by local authorities with community members existing needs. Stakeholders included Municipal Corporation Department (MCD), Delhi Development Authority (DDA), Delhi Jal Board (DJB), BSES, and traffic police. The project team also conducted a painting competition to capture children’s opinions and ideas about upgrading a local park, which was selected as a pilot case study.
3x3 collected feedback from workshop and engagement events to spur dialogue between local authorities and initiate neighborhood consultations. Currently, follow up action is being undertaken with local authorities to integrate Lado Sarai's current redevelopment plans into the guidelines generated from community consultations.
