2002 | Maheshwar, Madhya Pradesh | Client: Archaeological Survey of India, New Delhi

Concept design for a museum on the 19th-century queen, Ahilya Holkar, in the Ahilyawada (Palace).

This Museum is desinged to tell the life-story of the deified Queen Ahilya. The audience is redominantly rural, illiterate pilgrims who come to worship Ahilya. Keeping this mind, the design is largely visual, and based on creation of displays that represent key events in the life of the queen.
