DESIGNING MARITIME MUSEUMS
Image source: Course Faculty

Heritage embraces more than collections of objects or monuments, it includes intangible manifestations such as traditions of living expressions. Indian Ships dominated the Indian Ocean from over 4000 B.C. till 17th Century & it is the only ocean in the world, to be named after a country.
Museums are sources of significant contribution towards the safeguarding of intangible heritage, using their mandate, infrastructures and resources to develop creative initiatives about its preservation. The maritime trade (now possibly in sci-fi era) has propelled the human development.
Heritage embraces more than collections of objects or monuments, it includes intangible manifestations such as traditions of living expressions. ICOM recognizes this role well.
The SDG 14 focuses on life below water; understanding and creating a live-communication model would support the Government’s action plan. Course will provide a wide range of modern, sustainable, relational design models that will enable synthesis of the demands of the heritage preservation with core values, future business & infrastructure demands. For delivery, the course would rely heavily on case studies from India and abroad.
