Museum of Conflict

On relocating the Topography of Terror (originally proposed in Berlin by Peter Zumthor) to Ahmedabad, the functions were changed according to the Indian context. The new museum focused on the documentation of the Gujarat riots. The idea was to identify the key features of the given project and redesign it without compromising on the initial ideas of the architect. Features like the rectilinear plan, interplay of light and shadow, transparency, and precast structure were thus retained. Changes were made to emphasize the monumentality, scale, and experience of the structure.
