SEE THE SEA tower in Mumbai, India by Rithik Sanghvi

Designed by Indian architecture student Rithik Sanghvi, ''SEE THE SEA'' tower is an urban public space, with height of 350 meters (tallest in India) that is located in MumbaiIndia

Project description by student:

An urban public space, with interlace of water / Experiencing architecture through water.

“whenever I think about architecture, images come to my mind of childhood, spending time in this city of Mumbai. 

The spaces between tall buildings and narrow roads, the edge between water and land, the feel of emptiness and fullness, but never really got any answer, for my affection towards this city (MUMBAI).”

“despite its transformation into a cultural and economic hub, Mumbai lacks an architectural symbol that projects its cosmopolitan identity. Most of its existing monuments refers to colonial past and become anachronistic when confronted by the 21st century energy.

And the diversity of this island mega-city. The imminent arrival of towers emulating the Dubai formula appears equally dubious as a means for Mumbai to express itself.”

Situated along the curve expanse of marine drive at the southern end of the city, the SEE THE SEA tower, contains museums, underwater observatories, a garden at 150-meter level, and roof top observatories, adding as an icon to this mega city and India.
