A project very close to our heart called the Habitat for Autistic adults and senior citizens represents a submissive approach of understanding the user, his needs and problems to an extent where the built form distils to form a nest to the utility. The project involved multiplicity in terms of the users starting from Autistic adults with spectrum disorder, Senior citizens with varied abilities of living conditions and generic set of users connected to both the above.
An exercise of understanding the Autistic adult user involved studying their daily routine, disorders and behavioural patterns to group them as per their needs. These gave valuable inputs which would then serve as tools to formulate a set of basic rules with respect to every element of the built form.
