Collaborative Design
Research statement Anganwadi: Shirthady project was a collaboration between Deakin University and Manipal Academy of Higher Education within the Intercultural Dialogue through Design (iDiDe) program. IDiDe is an international design workshop with a transcultural themed agenda achieved through immersion of cultural experience and cross-national collaboration. The pedagogical approach involves students working in collaborative studio groups towards the socially conscious architectural brief and intensive design studio. This project is a following iteration to the previous Anganwadi: Ajjarkad project from 2018 with a new site and community to engage with to conceptualise design of an Anganwadi (AWC), or mother-child, centre in the regional village of Shirthady. There is a continuation of site-specific design response and community consultation between the local community and collaborative design teams. Five conceptual designs were developed over the studio program, with the ideas and concepts tested through community consultation to understand specific challenges, needs, and local knowledge to elevate the design maturity. This, in turn, also empowered the local community (Anganwadi workers, teachers and mothers) to be involved in the process; something they would not normally have the opportunity to contribute to. The project aspired to address the social, emotional, physical wellbeing of mother and child through a holistic design approach to local community needs and site specific responses. The building cost had a budget restriction of 8 Lahks (INR), or $16,000 (AUD). The design output was showcased in a Public Exhibition at the TMA Pai Convention Centre, Mangalore to an academic, stakeholder and regional government audience for awareness and further development following the intensive design studio. An exhibition catalogue was published that highlights each design and the iDiDe 2019 program.
Notes Public Exhibition of the 5 Conceptual Architectural Design works developed in collaboration between Deakin University (DU) and Manipal Academy of Higher Education (MAHE). The conceptual designs were developed over a series of intensive design workshops, with community consultation, as part of the iDiDe 2019 Study Tour programme.
