Museum of Handicrafts and Handloom
Bhubaneshwar, Odisha | Ongoing
The site planning organizes the buildings in two distinct clusters - amidst an existing thicket of trees and around a proposed retention pond. A performance arena was re-sited to overlook the pond.
The landscape design tries to capture snippets of Odisha’s vast and rich natural landscape, and its villages where the crafts still thrive. The planting design celebrates the species used in handicrafts, handlooms and the making of Jagannatha Puri rathas.
