I am a final year student in architecture and have taken the Kubh district (prayaag in Allahabad)as my site for thesis. I visited the Kumbh this year and want to propose a meuseum for Kumbh and a complex for the Ganga Riverfront. My problem is that I am not sure that a western concept of museum can be used for documenting activities along the Ganga, its myths, rituals and their meanings and reasons and the history and documentation center for what was declared the biggest gathering in the history of mankind during the Mahakumbh. I need some suggestions, guidance and case studies.
