RNA Mirage -- Worli, Mumbai
The 40-story residential RNA Mirage
is one of the first modern skyscrapers to come up since the Indian economic boom. Developed by RNA Builders and designed by architect Hafeez Contractor, the retro-futuristic art-deco design is a homage to Mumbai's rich art deco architecture and has influenced many newer towers with its throwback look and falling water podium.
I love the design, but the tower's original design was actually a bit funkier, which to me looked more like a designer purse than a tower, so good thing it changed.

The location and design of both towers will ensure commanding views and a greater funkiness to the growing Worli skyline.
