The Yamuna River Project and the University of Virginia in tandem with the India Habitat Center will be presenting and exhibiting a comprehensive collection of previous Re-Centering Delhi work, alongside the most current research completed by the YRP in 2016.
The India Habitat Center was, according to their mission statement, conceived to provide a physical environment in which to bring a holistic approach to large urban, socioeconomic and planning strategies, not limited to only India. This presents an exciting opportunity for the YRP to engage with academics, designers and citizens about the relevancy and urgency of the YRP's work in Delhi.

The 2014 exhibition in New Delhi had the goal of engaging Indian and foreign experts, practitioners, and authorities in an ongoing dialogue, through the work of the Re-Centering Delhi studios.
The exhibition includes 102 research maps and drawings by University of Virginia students, as well as a series of prints and photographs exploring the transformation from the historic relationship between the city and the river to the contemporary
neglect characterizing the Yamuna River. A site-specific installation by vir.mueller architects in collaboration with other designers will call attention to the current state of the river and encourage a discussion on future developments.
