Arch out loud challenges competition entrants to design a mixed dwelling development on one of the last undeveloped sections of Mumbai’s coastline. Entrants will design for both the indigenous fishing community that has occupied the site for hundreds of years -as well as a new demographic drawn to the affluent neighborhood that now encompasses the site. Proposals should identify architectural and planning solutions that support integration between these socio-economically distinct communities. Additionally, entrants are asked to confront complex realities by addressing one or more site specific and city-wide challenges:

_Shortage of public open space

_Threats to the historic and urban fabric

_Annual monsoon flooding and rising sea level.
