In the beginning there was an Artists Gallery in a modest structure of thatch. With international acclaim and growing stature the Artists wanted to exhibit their signature works in a permanent Museum. An important criterion was to design the structure without affecting the trees, and the sculptures in the landscape. The first design wrapped the volute shaped structures around them.

The team opted for a more contemporary structure in tune with the skills of the local masons and craftsmen. The display areas were maximized in rectilinear shaped galleries with natural daylight and high ceilings. The galleries opened to the gigantic trees and the sculptures blended into the landscape.

The building was treated with exposed brickwork and concrete. No additional plaster or painting was envisaged.
