FARMANDALA - GENERAL CONCEPT 

Farmandala is a flowing architecture system where the farming world meets the Indian slum in New Dehli; it creates a balanced mix with farms, working areas and housing, to improve the living conditions for the inhabitants, to avoid slum situations enhancing micro-economy. Farmandala doesn’t want to be only a green-mechanism based on its functionalism, but it will be also a landmark with a familiar aesthetics, easily recognizable by everybody as a positive symbol of prosperity. 

The design concept is taken from a characteristic Indian Mandala, which is used and redesigned to create an artificial landscape where farm and shops are closer, directly connected with the housing system, developed in the cylinder volumes above. 

Farmandala is the endeavour to concentrate housing with farms, giving a chance to survive with the agriculture products and shops.
