The Sir JJ School of Art was set up in 1857 as the Bombay School of Art & Industry, thanks to the vision and munificence of Sir Jamshetjee Jeejeebhoy. In the second half of the 19th century, architectural learning was integrated with an art education that followed the Beaux Arts School of sculptural ornament and architectural detailing.

In 1913, one hundred years ago, architecture as a distinct discipline was recognized by the formation of a separate and independent Department of Architecture of the Sir JJ School of Art. Robert Cable was appointed as the first Professor of Architecture and headed the department until 1923. Cable, and his most distinguished successors, Professor Claude Batley (1923-43), Professor C. M. Master (1943-48) and Professor Solomon Reuben (1948-59) took the architectural department into a new modernist phase, making an impact on the city and the country at large with their own architectural practices, while educating several generations of architects who collectively transformed the city of Mumbai and gave a great reputation to the school as the finest architectural school in Asia.
