The National Museum of Architecture was established to bring awareness among the public on environmental design, architecture, and human habitat development. These factors affect human life in many ways on a day-to-day basis. The responsibility of establishing this museum was undertaken by a registered society called GREHA. Several institutes and organizations have also partnered with GREHA in the initiative.
Architecture is known to be an ancient subject and it has given several significant contributions to several cultures around the world. The architecture in our cities, monuments, and villages denotes the prosperity of our culture. However, the role of architecture is yet to be identified in its fullest form.
The National Museum of Architecture aims at eliminating the gap between architecture and society. A museum is normally built to showcase various objects and information for the public. But here, architecture is the basic theme and it is largely related to buildings. Therefore, the building to house various designs on buildings should be different.
The National Museum of Architecture intends to inspire people in their understanding as well as an appreciation of the buildings around them in terms of their culture and history along with recognizing the contemporary changes in the discipline.
Similar to other museums, the National Architectural Museum also has splendid collections of architectural photographs, models, drawings, samples, videos, and films that show the design and construction process, biographical data of popular builders, architects, and craftsmen that have a significant contribution to the cultural and historical development of various countries.
Besides a large collection of architectural objects and information, the museum also hosts various events such as exhibitions, guided tours to popular architectural sites, curated shows, fairs, workshops, symposia, etc. Most museums around the world frequently conduct educational programs to raise young students who can enjoy and appreciate the architectural beauty of buildings. There will be study rooms in these museums that help children and adults to view and study various items. Specialists will also be available to assist researchers in the study room. Group researchers or students may use the teaching room which is ideal for presentations.
A healthy link between architecture and society is essential for social development and this is possible only through the collaboration of various institutions and academies. The National Museum of Architecture is also a network that intertwines various regional museums around it. Thus, it serves as a platform to celebrate the cultural diversity and richness of our civilization. When a society recognizes the need for museum networks, coordination of various activities become smoothens. Intellectual integrity has to be maintained along with different regional diversity models.
The internet plays a big role in helping the Museum to expand its reach. The website will be specifically designed to develop the participation of the public. All the events and activities of the Museum will be updated on the website, which makes it easier for the public to get the news at the right time. The website will have all the information regarding the museum for the public.
