Buildings that Shaped Bombay: Works of G.B. Mhatre, FRIBA 1902-1973

Kamu Iyer (Editor)
Synopsis Bombay, of all cities in India, is unique. It was built by the British as a commercial centre and migrants who came to live in it gave the city its singularly cosmopolitan character. Unlike other Indian cities, Bombay's growth was through a series of planning initiative of which 'Planned Precincts' by the City Improvement Trust, was most significant. In these, building form and design were regulated. One of the most important shapers of the built environment then was G. B. Mhatre, a sensitive and gifted architect. This book is about Mhatre's work and the role he played in the context of a critical period in the architectural history of Bombay. It traces the development of his architecture from traditional beginnings through the Art Deco period to the modern. Some of the important buildings designed by him in Bombay are illustrated with drawings and photos, as also some of his unrealised projects.
