Legibility

// Indian cities are becoming increasing complex due to rapid unplanned growth; home to thousands of new residents each day. Winding and unpredictable roads, unclear transit systems, informal neighbourhoods and makeshift economies, make the legibility of the city a major challenge for many from the perspective of navigation and its discovery. The notion of location in Indian cities is highly social and visual, relying on memory and experience which most often goes undocumented, preventing the experience to translate. //
