A large museum design in 3 weeks is not a challenge you get everyday. A memorial to display the extensive journey of Chandrakant Jagtap, fondly known as Chandukaka, at Saswad, a town near Pune. Interestingly through our research we found the name Saswad was initially known as "Sathwad" (7 banyan trees) that aptly became our design inspiration and the museum's name was coined as

"Smruti Chaya", also the perfect personification of Chandukaka. 


Located in the heart of Purandare district, knowing many local schools would be visit, we incorporated the use of engaging technology, the palkhi sound tunnel and interactive touch panels not only summarises Chandukaka's contribution to the society, but is surely to attract and inspire many visitors.
