Social Cohesion in Neighbourhoods, Chennai

In July 2015, Urban Design Collective hosted a day-long scoping workshop in collaboration with The University of Sheffield (TUOS), to explore the relationship between the physical fabric and social cohesion in the neighbourhoods of Chennai. The workshop brought together fellow urban designers from the city. Together we arrived at some preliminary mappings and also identified two neighbourhoods – Perambur and Velachery – for a pilot study to follow this.
