In 2013, Studio 7 went to Taj Ganj, the slum of Agra, to carry out surveys, choose a site, and eventually design a project which would benefit the local area. For my project I designed a paper recycling plant which manufactured schoolbooks for local children. Therefore, my first task was getting a good grasp of the recycling process in order to spatialise it. The concept was to house the wet and heavy processes on the ground floor and the light and dry processes on the upper floor. The building houses two cows, in order to collect cow pat for boiling the water. The scheme also implements rainwater harvesting with the tanks stored in the basement.
