Abstract

Urban commons were traditionally defined as commonly owned environmental resources – forests, rivers, fisheries or grazing land that were shared, used and enjoyed by all. Commons were then adapted to include public goods and services, such as public spaces, marketplaces, public education, health and infrastructure that allow societies to function. Today, with the proliferation of technology and in the context of Smart Cities, we explore the concept of a highly localized Technology based Parklet as a part of the new Urban Commons in a suburb of Mumbai, Matunga.
