The illustrated lecture will look at how projects in the realm of culture and heritage are interpreted through an effective scenography and a visual narrative. Siddharta Das
will do this by using examples from his own projects including those for the historic Jal Mahal (Jaipur); the J D Centre of Art (Bhubaneswar); the Victoria & Albert Museum (London); the Museum Rietberg (Zurich) and installations done at Southbank Centre (London) and the Bangalore Airport.
Siddhartha Das founded the "Multi-Disciplinary Studio” in 2002. He curates and designs projects that combine artisanal approaches with the industrial. He is interested in responsible design and was awarded the “British Council’s International Young Design Entrepreneur”. He works on projects that see culture as a driver of economy and socio-cultural change. The Delhi-based Studio is currently working on museums and thematic exhibitions, installations and spaces in airports. He is a visiting faculty at National Institute of Design, India and has lectured extensively across the world.
