We discuss kinetic architecture and ephemeral urbanism with Rahul Mehrotra, Professor of Urban Planning and Design at the Harvard Graduate School of Design (GSD). Topics include events like the kumbh mela, and its implications about thinking about temporality in contemporary practice; designing for obsolescence; immigration and identity; and India in the 21st century. Rahul is also principal of RMA Architects, Mumbai.
