Urban Transmogrification: Necessity for Mutation of Spaces
"Urban Transmogrification: Necessity for Mutation of Spaces" is an article by Shantesh Kelvekar that was published in Issue 38 (Dec, 2013) of Journal of Landscape Architecture, India.
Transmogrification is an act of changing the existing into a different form or appearance through a transformative process.
The article emphasised on the necessity of such transformative spaces in the urban context. Citing examples of already existing such spaces, the article also highlighted that such spaces are not infrastructural, but rather are cultural and are shaped by the people.
The intent of this article was to highlight that people as stake holders, more than designers and agencies are responsible to create such spaces. These spaces, also almost always tend to contribute positively towards engaging community and shaping the future of society.
