Bhandotra Museum

Bhandotra, Rajasthan | 2018

Bhandotra Museum is a folk museum near the border of Gujarat and Rajasthan, designed to commemorate the traditional rituals of village life. We proposed a hybrid technology - using  traditional rammed earth walls (stony earth) and "lifting" the roof as a means to open up the interiors to light (and make them taller - traditional houses are low to the ground), by hanging corrugated sheet roofs from a light steel frame that encompasses the campus.

The design language is reminiscent of an archaeological site in progress.
