“Cybermohalla Hub” is the latest publication from Sternberg Press, outlining a project of the same name by architects Nikolaus Hirsch and Michel Muller. Cybermohalla Hub is a structure that is part of Sarai, a Dheli-based institution that describes itself as “a space for research, practice and conversation about the contemporary media and urban constellations.”
The intent of Cybermohalla is to act as a dynamic community center or cultural lab for the people of Dheli, focused on the potential of infrastructure and urban planning. Projects are divided into four categories — generative contexts, minor practices, commoning, and public dialogue — with a multitude of outcomes including newspapers, installations, and radio broadcasts. Community members were asked to participate in the design of the building, thus making it a truly self reflexive project and viable means of knowledge production.
