Deco in Delhi is an initiative to document and archive the last remaining bits of Art Deco heritage in Delhi. Art Deco as style flourished in India in the early to mid twentieth century and Mumbai has the second largest number of Art Deco buildings in the world after Miami. Delhi as a capital city is more popularly known for it's Mughal, Colonial, Indo-Saracenic and the post-independence Modern architecture. By documenting Art Deco heritage of Delhi, the aim is to create awareness about the presence of this lesser known style in multiple parts of Delhi and the architects, contractors and craftsmen who were involved in experimenting with this style. This initiative began in March this year and has been running since through personal funds and time investment to get the most valuable information across to the masses. This is an attempt to see Delhi's architectural history in a completely different light from what we already know and have studied. The documentation currently exists as an Instagram page
, on Twitter
and a website
. If you have been following our work in the last few months, and would like us to grow in the coming years, then kindly support us through this platform. Your funds will be utilised in recruiting more people for research, documentation, better equipment for visuals and sound recording, conducting walks and supporting the website in the coming years. We wish to bring your more detailed research and documentation on the Art Deco heritage of Delhi in the future. Thanks in advance for your help.
