It is a proud moment for Manipur’s Huidrom Design Studio which has been conferred with the coveted ‘International Muse Design Award 2022’ for the Project – Mount Manipur Memorial under the Architectural Concept Design competition.
The Mount Manipur Memorial devoted exclusively to the freedom warriors is spanned across an area of more than 45000 sq ft. It features the back of the royal elephant with the museum, royal sword monument, galleries, an outdoor auditorium, cafeteria and a beautiful garden.
Besides, the sword monument is a tribute to the martyrs who sacrificed their lives in the freedom struggle. It incorporates one dedicated gallery for Maharaja Kula Chandra Dhaja Singh; along with another 22 Manipuris.
This project’s design is truly organic, which has drawn attention from the globe; thereby aiding in the design studio’s current contribution to the field of architecture.
Mount Harriet is the third-highest island peak in Andaman and Nicobar islands, where Manipur’s Maharaja Kulachandra Dhaja Singh and 22 other freedom fighters were imprisoned during the Anglo-Manipuri War (1891).
Taking to Facebook, the Huidrom Design Studio wrote “Huidrom Design Studio is once again excited and honoured to receive the prestigious International Muse Design Award 2022 (Season2) as a GOLD WINNER for the Project Mount Manipur Memorial (Architectural Concept Design Competition).
