Abstract: Place-Making is a term often used to describe ways of life in otherwise ‘rootless’ spaces. It refers to the physical, cultural, and social identities that define a place and its process of evolution. What goes into this process of place-making? What role does this have for people and communities who are new to a place and trying to lay claim to a particular place? This research explores the nature of a migrant place in the city or if there exists something like that at all. The research is about the transformation of a place through the appropriation of migrants. It will study the consequences of this socio-spatial transformation and its effect on the host community and other people living in that space. The research is also about a heterogeneous migrant community with many different contestations of identity. The researcher is interested in what happens to these multiple identities in the making of a place and if there exists a larger migrant consciousness or identity. The research will also explore the relationship of the migrant community and its place.
