Smriti Van Earthquake Memorial & Museum

Bhuj, India

Year: 2016

Institutional

The manner in which Bhuj seems to be growing today, with Madhapar and Bhuj undergoing both expansion and transformation, the Bhujiyo Dungar presents itself as an opportunity to protect the natural habitat. It provides the city an opportunity to enjoy a vast expanse of open land which in the coming years would be a scarcity.

The different institutions that have been planned within the Smrutivan Memorial such as the Library and Documentation Center, the Arts & Conference Facilities, the Living Heritage & Interpretation Centre and The Orientation Center, are all aimed towards the propagation of Kachchh. A new cultural landscape would emerge because of these institutions.
