Runner-up in international competition
In a prestigious international competition, the partnership between NorthernLight and Flying Elephant Studio claimed the runner-up position in the highly anticipated Museum of Royal Kingdoms of India (MORKI) and Gujarat Vandana Museum (GVM) project. This collaboration also involved sub-consultants Design Habit and Matharoo Associates. Our team provided consultancy services encompassing master planning, architecture, landscape design, interior design, and exhibition design for both of these museums, nestled in the picturesque Kevadia, Gujarat. The proposal earned them a place among the final two teams shortlisted for consultant selection.
MORKI and GVM are more than just museums; they stand as monuments of unity. These are spaces for reflection, inspiration drawn from the past, and the forging of new paths for the future. MORKI narrates the tale of India’s unity, with visitors entering through a grand facade leading to the Hall of Memories— an immersive space inspired by local palace architecture. Meanwhile, GVM will shed light on how historical and recent processes have shaped Gujarat’s present state and its institutions. These two museums are seamlessly connected by the Bridge of Unity, which comes alive at night with mesmerizing holographic projections.
The envisioned Museum Complex, spanning an impressive 45,000 square meters, is strategically positioned to overlook the majestic Narmada River. While achieving runner-up status, the innovative and comprehensive approach to museum design by NorthernLight and Flying Elephant Studio has sparked excitement and anticipation for the cultural and architectural marvels that will grace Gujarat’s landscape in the near future.
