Vision and The Visionary
The Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, TIFR’s brief to us for the museum was to express and display Bhabha’s life and achievements while spotlighting his accomplished persona with sensitivity and humility.
The Vision and The Visionary is a permanent display at the TIFR, with Bhabha’s multi-faceted personality and dream for India’s nuclear self-reliance being the trigger for the narrative. The chronology and history of his achievements are woven around the focal point of his vision. Serenading his scientific temperament and vision, we approached the space using geometric grid lines as building blocks. The exhibition starts from the point where the grid diverges. From here, one can see the varied facets of Bhabha’s wide-ranging ideas and many talents that contribute towards his complete and winning personality. In keeping with his passion for fine art, we use the Art Deco graphic style, reflective of his time and preferences.
