Bombay Imagined: The City of Unrealised Dreams by Robert Stephens

Robert Stephens on his lecture for Sarmaya: “This intensely illustrated talk will feature archival photographs from Sarmaya, paired with a diverse collection of unrealised plans from the Bombay Imagined archive. The audience is invited to eavesdrop on previously unheard dialogues between the built and unbuilt, the city as it was and as it might have been.”

Robert Stephens is a Mumbai-based architect, author and founder of Urbs India, a studio that narrates lesser-known civic histories through the juxtaposition of archival material with contemporary aerial photographs of urban India.
