Abstract: World Bank 2008 survey stated that Developing countries will triple their entire urban built-up area, generating the same amount of urban area as the entire world had cumulatively generated by the year 2000. For a case Delhi, the national capital of India, has the country’s second-largest slum population. Due to the rapid urbanization process, the urban core of the city today is under intense pressure of growing demands; this pressure births urban slum. Attempt is to look at urban slum as a resource and effort at integrating it with the city for mutual symbiosis which assumes slums as very much part of a city, how physical design will come up which is process oriented rather than a pattern. Concern here is not to displace slum from urban fabric but holistically how can blend with existing urban fabric by the notion of place making in slums. The vision is to look at skills of slum as resource, which seeks integration with city, which is essential for mutual symbiosis. Major attributes will be decongesting slum through economic, community and environmental development, within existing urban fabric. Low cost development model on vacant land of railway corridor Delhi. Scrutinize potential of Indian railways to develop this project holistically.
