UltraTech IndiaNext Build With Speed

HP-BWS-2-2.jpg UltraTech IndiaNext Build With Speed

The challenge is to Build with Speed, while respecting the context, is about anchoring design with the help of the latest technologies, processes and materials to re craft India’s growth story. Engineers and architects have to ambitiously and courageously take up the challenge to fulfill the nation’s promises, time being of the essence. In doing so, you will redefine your own role in India’s post-pandemic future and claim your place in the sun.

The time is now. Step up, collaborate and show your mettle by thinking on your feet. To provide momentum to the building of homes in large numbers, the competition is looking to be a change leader by attracting proposals that are practical, and yet innovative enough to generate the kind of numbers that will enable us to reach the said targets for 2030. This will only become a reality if the AEC community recognizes that a paradigm shift in thinking and design are needed to resolve India’s housing crisis.

THE CHALLENGE
The Categories The projects may fall under any of these two categories:
1) Urban
The simplicity of the module, its ability to be swiftly executed and replicated with variants to allow for creating individual experiences while responding to the existing fabric of the city neighborhood will be viewed with a critical lens. In urban areas, the solution could be centered around the needs of:
– Daily wage workers who face an absence of adequate housing facilities and infrastructure.
– Slum dwellers rehoused by the infrastructure or development projects within the city.
– Rental housing for people who cannot afford to buy a house in the city.
2) Rural
This design challenge addresses the challenge of building a home within a cluster of others while retaining the community flavor of the area under consideration. In rural areas, the areas of intervention include:
– Shelter for the homeless, for e.g., the people living on the fringes of the village. – Homes for migrants who have returned home to make a new living for themselves.
– Low-cost mass housing solutions for the benefactors of PMAY-G schemes.


Short Description

The challenge is to Build with Speed while respecting the context, which is about anchoring design with the help of the latest technologies, processes, and materials to recraft India’s growth story.
