Masterplan for a Comprehensive
Makeover of Maharashtra Nature Park
and Mithi River

Consortium of global professionals that included SNK Architects, India; D Radheshwar Architect; Cecil Balmond, UK; Anuradha Mathur and Dilip daCunha, UPenn and several others.

The Multi-disciplinary consortium prepared a masterplan and concept design for an environmentally sensitive makeover in the Maharashtra Nature Park and a pedestrian-and-cyclist bridge over the Mithi River. The context of this competition is shaped by plans to clean the Mithi River, to develop the Bandra-Kurla Complex, BKC, and by the future urban renewal of Dharavi- India’s most prominent informal settlement.

The proposal by the consortium was shortlisted.

A 70,000 Sq. ft. addition to the original Museum Building houses a new state-of-the-art Plant Studies Center, comprised of herbarium that holds over 7 million preserved specimens in a high density storage system in environmentally controlled spaces, library and study rooms in a new wing that expands the original domed Beaux Arts structure built in 1902. The new Janet and Arthur Ross Gallery and Lobby serves as the primary entry to the new facility and as a lobby for the existing auditorium. The project also includes the restoration of the building’s central domed space and the renovation of the northern wing of the Museum Building’s top floor as the new LuEsther T. Mertz Library. The design of the new building is formally and materially integrated with the turn-of-the-century building.
