CP Kukreja & Crab Studio Unveil Design for Worlds Largest Museum in Delhi

CP Kukreja Architects and Crab Studio Chosen to Design "The Brij" – Live Museum and Cultural Hub in New Delhi

CP Kukreja Architects along with London-based Crab Studio reveals the design for the upcoming BRIJ, which will be the new cultural centre for Serendipity Arts Foundation in New Delhi, India.  With a sprawling one million square feet of experiential spaces, the groundbreaking Live Museum is set to become one of the world's largest museums. Read below more about this project on SURFACES REPORTER (SR)

Situated on a former quartzite quarry, BRIJ caters to visual, performing, literary, and culinary arts, featuring a new arts academy.

Elegant Curved 'Vessels' and Waffle Grid

Central to the design, six gracefully curved 'vessels' hover above a waffle grid, inspired by India's Charbagh gardens.

Beyond their aesthetic appeal, these architectural elements strategically organize the site's topography, providing sheltered pathways adaptable to different weather conditions.

Complementing this, a fully conditioned underground passage guarantees seamless access to all areas of the site.

Weather-Adaptable Design

The grid strategically organizes the site's topography and circulation layers, providing sheltered routes for varying weather conditions.

A fully conditioned underground passage ensures accessibility to all parts of the site regardless of weather conditions.

Internal Functionality

Internally, the vessels host offices, residential facilities, galleries, teaching spaces, a library, museum, and theatre auditorium. The thoughtfully mixed functional distribution encourages the cross-pollination of ideas. Downstairs, there are workshops and artisanal villages where visitors can see how things are made in different ways.

BRIJ Cultural Center emerges as a dynamic space addressing cultural needs and engaging a diverse audience in New Delhi.
