New Delhi, April 21 (IANS) The central government has invited suggestions for architectural and interiors designs for a proposed museum dedicated to the Prime Ministers of India, with the winner getting Rs 10,000.
“We envision a state-of-the-art structure reflective of India’s current progressive temperament, as also its long and rich tradition. The museum will be curated in India’s capital; consequently, the edifice should equally compliment the historical cityscape of Delhi,” a post on www.mygov.in said.
But these factors need not be a “limiting factor” for the design ideas. The last date for submission of suggestions is April 29.
The government is looking for a futuristic approach to the building design by adopting sustainable and energy conservation practices, the post said and added that the building should be “technology oriented”, “user friendly”, and capable of meeting future needs.
“Between 15,000 and 20,000 square metres of floor space is our requirement. The best suggestion/idea will get a cash prize of Rs 10,000,” the post said.
