Bengaluru: “The State Government will set up an Innovation Experience Exhibition recording the State’s development, journey of innovation, achievers responsible for it and their achievements will be set up in Bengaluru,” said Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai.
Speaking after inaugurating the BLR Design Week Conference organised by Bengaluru Designers Community here on Thursday December 8, he said that the proposed museum will be of international standard and will give all information about innovations. It will be situated amidst greenery and give encouragement for foreign tourism, Besides, the young innovators and designers will derive inspiration from the museum, he said.
He said like a small city in any big world, Bengaluru will have eight city centres in all eight directions and instructions are given to the officials concerned to prepare a master plan for this. There will be no concept called city centre for Bengaluru as eight city centres will be established and a good road and rail network will be provided. The Government is open to suggestions from designers regarding this project, he said.
Bommai said observation is a must for the good designers and they must see with insight and listen to their conscience. Then only it will help to come up with good designs. The new designs will not only make a difference but will have an impact. The young designers have talent and strength to make designs that will bring reforms in life. The good designs inspire also because making designs is a continuous process, he noted.
” In Bengaluru, there is art, culture, heritage, engineering, innovation and creativity but there is a need to bring them together. The result of this coordination must become the designs of Brand Bengaluru. As time changes, they also need to move forward. Most of the challenges are man-made and they are given a challenge to make models to make life of man simple with the existing infrastructure without changing it. For instance, there are important roads like M. G. Road, Commercial Street, Brigade Road, Malleshwaram, Indiranagar which must be re-designed for the benefit of people, and protecting its heritage”, he said.
