2007 Award of Distinctionion

The Convocation Hall

Horizontal Navigation Bar w/Rollover Effect

Jury Citation

The restoration of the Convocation Hall of the University of Mumbai has demonstrated superb, interdisciplinary technical achievement that has elegantly renewed one of the city’s finest Victorian buildings. A rigorous technical study allowed for the thorough understanding of the building’s dilapidation and framed the subsequent conservation works. The project was marked by a tremendous attention to detail, which entailed a range of appropriate conservation methods and the sourcing of materials and decorative elements from around the country and from Europe, thereby retaining the material authenticity of the building.  This architectural jewel now stands beautifully restored at the centre of historic Mumbai as an example to be followed in other municipal projects and as model to be studied by the many future generations of students who will have the privilege of utilizing this inspiring space.
