Museum of Archaeology


Proposal for a Museum of Archaeology in Ahmedabad next to Corbusier's Sanskar Kendra and Doshi's Tagore Hall. The site is adjacent to the city's riverfront project and is a first of its kind and scale. The idea of excavation is brought upon for the formation of the museum and to preserve the important urban qualities of the land.
