Museum of Photography was my Architecture thesis project. With a passion for photography, I wanted to learn more about it. I started looking up for museum of photography in India where I could gain more knowledge about this form of art. I discovered there was no such museum dedicated to photography, where people could learn more, discover and research anything related to photography.

Museum of Photography was my Architecture thesis project. 
With a passion for photography, I wanted to learn more about it. I started looking up for museum of photography in India where I could gain more knowledge about this form of art. I discovered there was no such museum dedicated just for photography, where people could learn more, discover and research anything related to photography. With so many people  trying so hard to make it as photographers I wanted to create a museum which would allow professional photographers to gain the right exposure and would also serve as a learning experience for photography enthusiastics at this museum. 
I considered a site location in Mumbai facing Arabian sea. Initially I started playing with the forms for the exterior of the building. My final structure was evolved from the idea of creating relation between the static land and the waves. The building depicts the language of the wave roaring and crashing at the shore.
The entrance was designed like a long tunnel which would give the visitors the feeling of rushing through an undergound subway station and suddenly looking up into the sky to realise that the earth has shifted a few degrees and the wather has changed suddenly. That was the feeling I wanted to incorporate by bending natural light into the museum.
