Yagya - Thanks for maintaining this thread.

Unfortunately not many people (including pro photographers) in Mumbai know about this architecture style and its coverage on the internet is very poor. A friend who lives smack-dab on Marine Drive had to be given a quick 101 about his own building and neighborhood. He's lucky he didn't receive a slap when he said he had no idea what AD is.

Delhi has a couple of hotels (Imperial, Ambassador etc) built in AD Style. Darya Ganj also has some old AD buildings that haven't been documented at all. Will try to snap them during my next visit to the city.

BTW I just ordered a copy of Navin Ramani's Bombay Art Deco Architecture from Amazon. That should provide us with a good list of AD structures in Mumbai. I'll share all the details once I get my hands on it.

Yes, thanks for keeping this thread alive.

I love art deco & I have Navin Ramani's book which is fantastic!

Highly recommend all architecture buffs to buy it.

Mumbai is second to Miami with its art deco architecture & pleased that some preservation efforts are being made there.

Nice to see other parts of India maintaining this style which is less documented.

"Art" deco is so freaking overrated.
