Andrew Harris at RIBA

“Vertical Mumbai"

Dr Andrew Harris gave a presentation on ‘Vertical Mumbai’ at the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) on 25 June.

The talk drew on Andrew’s ESRC-funded research investigating the construction of elevated roads and walkways across contemporary Mumbai.

It was part of a special evening at RIBA dedicated to modern stories and dynamics of Mumbai, organised to coincide with their current exhibition on the Indian architect Charles Correa (which continues to 4 September).

The evening also included a screening of the documentary ‘Liquid City’, on Mumbai’s water infrastructure, directed by UCL Geography Professor Matthew Gandy.
