Abstract

Increasing population in urban areas has put up additional pressure on urban and city resources. Housing, being in one of the three basic amenities required for human survival, is the worst hit. Widening income disparity, lack of space, and costly construction has added to the misery. Tis has become a worldwide phenomenon and is posing challenges to Indian cities as well. To bridge this gap between need and fulfllment, can architecture be considered as a service? rather than an end product; for those who need it severely and doesn’t have capacity. A possibility is being explored to how the same can be planned? Te paper tries to fnd out an opportunity to consider architecture as a service and plan micro habitats in the urban areas as an extension to the existing infrastructure.
