Desiring Karail: Morphogenesis of an Informal Settlement in Dhaka – Research Seminar #8
This month the Informal Urbanism Research Hub (InfUr-) is hosted their monthly research seminar on the urbanisation of informal settlements. Informal settlements are often described as spontaneous, as they are produced when needed by the people and lack any explicit control from the state. However, they are incredibly complex in process, design, and production.
This seminar highlights the importance of understanding the processes in relation to morphogenesis. The research articulates the dynamic forces that enable or constrain the production process. The thesis focusses on the case study of Karail, the largest informal settlement in Dhaka. The thesis maps and analyses the morphogenesis of Karail over the last 18 years by tracing morphological change.
