CHAAL.CHAAL.AGENCY is a design-research practice that works between Ahmedabad and Bogotá.
The nature of our work has allowed us to enquire into issues and potentialities particular to Global South urbanisms as templates for global imaginations, with the aim of triggering larger transformations through small interventions that usually involve visionary clients, inquisitive students, allied organizations, and proactive communities.
Our field of operations is formed by various convictions that ultimately aim at reengineering infrastructural systems. We understand infrastructures as the techno-political spaces and processes that allow settlements to work and can range from movable devices, inserts, and architectures, to urban and ecological systems. Our work, in that manner, ranges across scales and outcomes, between the speculative and the practical, and between different degrees of success and failure. Experiments envisioned towards more self-sufficient, equitable, and cohesive environments.
