Golmuri club& Dual role of Tata's in building Jamshedpur

The Golmuri club, a building from twentieth-century India in Jamshedpur, was studied and analysed to understand the architectural production that was evolving in the city and the methods of representing the same. Eventually, a catalogue was curated where certain architectural works in Jamshedpur were identified, to understand the role of different bodies in developing the city, and thus the larger question of Indian architectural modernity. 'A joint enterprise', a theoretical framework, by Preeti Chopra was used to look at the architectural attributes of Jamshedpur.
