UDC’s ‘Where is YOUR Chennai?’ installation featured as part of the online platform of MoMA’s Uneven Growth exhibition!!!

Uneven Growth, the latest exhibition in MoMA’s Issues in Contemporary Architecture series addresses the increasingly inequitable urban development taking place in our cities as we move into a future that is two-thirds urbanized and shrinking on resources.
‘Where is YOUR Chennai?’ was accepted as an example of “tactical urbanisms”—temporary, bottom-up interventions that aim to make cities more livable and participatory. Visit this link to read more about it.
