Why does the MAP building look the way it does?
Join architect Soumitro Ghosh of the acclaimed Indian architectural practice Mathew & Ghosh, as he takes visitors through a guided tour of the museum. Explore the nuances that went into creating a space that makes art accessible to all and the process of creating this landmark space.
Housed in a state-of-the-art, 44,000 square foot building in the heart of Bengaluru’s museum district, the building features a strong focus on accessibility, to support visitors with special needs. Designed with steel panels that are embossed with a cross pattern, the façade of the building resembles an industrial water tank, which is meant to bring out the metaphorical connection between the idea of storing something precious — in this case, art. The simple and unique design, material, transparency, and opacity of the building make it an architectural icon in the city of Bengaluru.
