Professor Sarah Kenderdine and John Choy have photographed the ceilings of 70 of Mumbai's most beautiful buildings, using an automated rig to create huge one gigapixel composite images. Displayed in a temporary installation called the DomeLab, they're opening eyes to the city's marvels with their immersive art, at once familiar and yet uncanny.
Knesset Eliyahoo Synagogue -- Built in 1884 by Jacob Elias Sassoon, the synagogue was constructed in memory to his father. It served a prominent and affluent Jewish community in the city, and at one time the celebration of Yom Kippur called for extra chairs to fit into the packed synagogue.
Terminal 2, Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport – Home to India's largest public art program, including a 3.2 kilometer art wall with over 7,000 pieces of art, the ceiling is also a stunning creation in and of itself.
Dr Bhau Daji Lad museum – The city's oldest museum and situated in Byculla East, the Dr Bhau Daji Lad was once known as the Victoria and Albert Museum. Known for its rare fine and decorative art collection, it won UNESCO's 2005 Award of Excellence for cultural preservation after a five-year restoration.
Mumbai's Municipal Corporation – Located in the south of the city, the Victorian Gothic-style grade 2A listed building features panoramic views of the city from its viewing gallery 225 feet up.
The Gateway of India – Built in the twentieth century, the monument was once used as a grandiose landing point for British governors and prominent individuals during the time of the British Raj. Eighty-five feet high and constructed from basalt, the arch was once a symbol of colonial might and is still a popular tourist attraction.
Cathedral of the Holy Name – Blessed and opened to the public in 1095, the church received cathedral status in 1964. Gothic in style and featuring two towers, the ceiling is covered in frescoes and geometric patterns painted by Jesuit lay-brother A. Mocheni of Bergamo with the help of two assistants.
Adishwarji Jain temple – Mumbai is home to one of India's largest Jainist populations, and the Adishwarji temple is among the city's most stunning places of worship, containing idols aplenty and covered in tableaux from scriptures.
Mount Mary church – A Roman Catholic Basilica constructed in a semi-Gothic design, the place of worship features a relatively plain ceiling, while the walls bear beautiful murals telling the story of the life of Mary.
Global Vipassana Pagoda – Inaugurated in 2009, the pagoda mimics the form of the Shwedagon Pagoda in Myanmar. Twenty-nine meters high, the space underneath is large enough to fit 8,000 worshipers.
Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya – The museum played host to Kenderdine's DomeLab installation, and is known for its combination of art and history on display. Built in the Indo-Saracenic style, the early twentieth century construction won a UNESCO Asia-Pacific Heritage Award for Cultural Heritage Conservation in 2010.
Shree Siddhivinayak – A Hindu temple located in Prabhadevi and devoted to Ganesh, the two-century-old construct was first consecrated in 1801 and houses the black stone idol of Shree Siddhivinayak.
