Collection # 5
The culmination of the notNeutral City Plate collection celebrates Visionary Thinking and takes a look at four great cities - Paris, Chicago, Montreal and Mumbai - and examines the past, present, and future of innovative architecture and design.
Mumbai - pop. 13.5 million
With an estimated population of 13.5 million, Mumbai (formerly Bombay) is the most populated city in the world. It is one of those cities constantly being listed as one of the ‘fastest/biggest/densest’ -- a city of the new world order. It is the product of major feats of civil engineering that merged an archipelago of islands into an amalgamated mass of activity.
Might we suggest a 2020 World’s Fair in Mumbai that showcases 21st century imagination and creates monuments that speak to our hope for the future?
One of the most arresting designs in the collection, this city plate features a dramatic blue swath of The Arabian Sea. Noted landmarks include the tony Malabar Point (in red) and the Gateway of India and Taj Majal Hotel (also in red) along the Mumbai Harbor (in blue.)
These porcelain plates measure 12” across, with each city’s downtown core printed on a black background. Key buildings are represented with persimmon icons, while rivers and public spaces are shown in blue and green.
