Presidency Museum, established as a part of the University’s bicentennial celebrations, is housed in two rooms opening on to the main corridors of the main heritage building on College Street, Kolkata.
Alleya was assigned the design and execution of the exhibit with WYSIWYG Communications providing graphics, textual, and photographic inputs under the overall curatorial supervision of Prof. Swapan Chakravorty of the University. Spatial Design and Conservation work was carried out in the rooms by Abin Design Studios prior to designing and executing the museum.
Museum-worthy artefacts and documents, were strewn all over the campus at the time we were commissioned to do the project.
After sifting through thousands of items, the shortlisted artefacts were refurbished, labelled and made ready for display.
