Urban Design Research Institute (UDRI), in collaboration with the OVAL Trust, OCRA, NPCCA and KGA, as part of the Federation of Residents Trust (FORT) was part of a collective effort to successfully nominate Mumbai’s Victorian and Art Deco Ensembles for a UNESCO World Heritage Inscription. On 1st July 2018, Mumbai’s Victorian and Art Deco Ensembles were inscribed as UNESCO World Heritage sites. This is the first such nomination dossier from India drafted by citizen groups and civil society organisations.

The Inscription is for ensembles in two heritage precincts in the Fort and Marine Drive precincts, namely, a 19th Century collection of Victorian structures and Art Deco buildings dating back to the 20th Century. Interestingly, both these precincts are conjoined by the Oval Maidan. To know more about these iconic structures, watch ‘Victorian Gothic and Art Deco Ensembles of Mumbai, World Heritage Site’, available here.
