Presidency, as a University, has a long history of encouraging freedom of choice and imparting finesse in the human attributes of its individuals. The restoration and rejuvenation of this landmark celebrates these aspects through restoration, exhibition and landscape works.
The Pinnacle Arch is a representation of the journey of an individual and the institute, from a sheltered environment to the collective growth and aspiration towards greatness.
The museum project was to restore the rooms of the Baker Hall in the campus of Presidency University which were lying closed in a Dilapidated Condition and convert it into a museum of things and accolades the University collected over 200 years.
