The Bihar Museum, Bihar designed by Maki and Associates + Opolis
Year of completion: 2018
The museum was conceived as a “campus” - an interconnected landscape of buildings and exterior spaces that maintains a modest but dynamic profile, in harmony with existing site conditions. Each zone has been given a distinct presence and recognizable form within the complex and are linked together via interior and exterior courtyards and corridors. The museum’s exterior is characterized by extensive use of weathering steel, a durable material, which symbolizes India’s historical achievements in metallurgy as well as its current prominence within the international steel industry. It is supplemented with stone, terracotta, and glass finishes - a modern material palette with clear connections to Bihar’s past and future.
