Abstract: Cities in Situ, explores the ways in which those without land, money and power shape the urban fabric. Through the introduction of an alternative spatial and material system that creates interfaces and overlaps between these parties, the thesis postulates potential influence in the relationship and negotiation between slums and the politics of urban spaces, to augment the physical as well as psychological construct of these informal realms. Through the system, overlapping the representational and operational roles of various parties is exploited, combined with strategic architectural processes, to generate the alternative system of housing and social spaces for the slum community. The idea is to reintegrate the slum territories, in the gaze of urban realm, as integral parts of the urban order, so that they are no longer holes/voids in the maps but connects as part of the archipelago of urban frag- ments. These physical and material transformation, should also effect psychological regeneration, to liberal- ise the latent energy within the inhabitants, and democratize reconstruction of their homes. The project is beyond providing a solution, but a catalytic process that is open and organic, to explores link between perception, materiality and space that creates active physical and social interventions to simultaneously rejuvenate individual beings, the slum and the city as a whole.
