“Local studio Mathew & Ghosh Architects has completed the Museum of Art & Photography in Bangalore, India.
Set to open later this month, the Museum of Art & Photography (MAP) has a distinctive facade that encloses pared-back internal spaces.
“The architectural necessity for MAP to be an unmissable part of the city for the visitor and the dweller alike was a critical factor,” said Mathew & Ghosh Architects co-founder Soumitro Ghosh. “It had to be iconic, for ease of cognition.”
“The responsibility of architectural design of a museum in its internal enclosure is however to give complete foreground to art in all possible, within and around the building,” he told Dezeen.”
