This project was an assignment to design a single coach for a train exhibition.
Azaadi Express – the Mobile Train Exhibition, celebrated 150 years of the 1857 war, 60 years of independence, and the birth centenary of Shaheed Bhagat Singh. The special train comprising 11 coaches, decked with material related to all major incidents in the making of India since the first war of independence journeyed throughout the country for eight months. During its journey, it passed through 70 destinations across the country, two to five days each, when general public would visit it and experience the spirit of freedom movement through visual medium.
The exhibition train depicts the 150 years of India’s history by way of photographs, diorama (re-creation of a natural setting which shows a specific moment in time), cut-outs, scrolls and videos.
Here are some photographs of the table top model.
