Architecture In The City

 

Mumbai in design!

 

If you flip through the history book pages of Mumbai, you will realise that the past is testimony to the fact that this city was the original multi-ethnic and multi-linguistic capital of the world. Mumbai attracted seafarers, who came in to trade the coveted spices, yarn and cotton from Mumbai to the rest of the world. The Jews from Baghdad, the colonial entourage from England, traders from Holland and merchants from Portugal - all of them entered the shores for business but eventually embraced this mercurial city as their home.

A part of their culture that still stands tall for all to see, is the beautiful architecture that dots the skyline of the city. The architects and artisans not only brought with them architecture designs from back home; but also, creatively infused local design palates in their creation, thereby pioneering various architecture forms.

The Gateway of India, or the arc de triomphe of Mumbai, will be your first stop. Here, you will see Geroge Wittet’s construction genius and explore the Indo-Sarcenic style of architecture. Amidst conversation about the architecture of Royal India Yatch Club, Taj Hotel and NGMA you will find yourself in the cultural and architectural precinct of Mumbai – Kala Ghoda.

You will see the first iron cast structure in India – the Watson Hotel, Neo –Gothic synagogues,  renaissance revival buildings and British Colonial Architecture. All of these marvels within a kilometre of each other.

After driving past the colonial structures of the High court and the University, you will reach Marine Drive – The Mecca of Art Deco structures in Mumbai. First constructed in the mid 1900s, art deco structures gained immense popularity among the rich and the famous. Today, Mumbai boasts of having the second most number of art deco buildings after Miami. 

Our final stop is the magnificent Victoria Terminus Building. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Victoria terminus is arguably the most beautiful heritage building in the city. Built by architect F W Stevens, this site took ten years for completion and today, stands as a shining example of the Victorian Italianate Gothic Revival architecture.
