  • CommentaryWhile monsoon rains predicated against the use of a flat roof in the final design of Manik Bagh Palace, in 1933 Eckart Muthesius created a number of collages based on photographs of the palace, made in collaboration with a local photographer, that presented the building as a flat-roofed functionalist box. These fictionalised images of the palace where frequently used to represent the project in the press and were also used in an exhibition about the palace in Bombay (Mumbai) in 1933.
