Sh*tscape: Mumbai’s Landscape In-BetweenFaculty Advisors: Anuradha Mathur, ASLA and Dilip da Cunha

Sh*tscape, Mumbai’s Landscape In-Between focuses on the Appapada Quarry in the northern Mumbai suburb of Malad East. It addresses the issue of informal settlements and sanitation at the western boundary of Sanjay Gandhi National Park. This project will propose the making of an entirely functioning landscape built from human excreta. It will recover the ‘soil’ from the settlements while extracting the beneficial flora from the forest and, in turn, utilize both as a generator for a new and evolving landscape.”
