Students of JJ School of Art will work with the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) as consultants for construction of an iconic Rs300-crore textile museum in Mumbai.

The civic body will sign a contract with the school to prepare a vision document for the museum and design the interiors. The students have been roped in at a cost of Rs 15 crore.

Eight years after the museum was proposed, the BMC started work on the textile museum which will be spread over 10 acres, and will be constructed at United Mills, at Kalachowkie.

A civic official said, “As the museum is planned on a mill compound, we want a to recreate old culture which will attract young crowd. The students will be able to help with that.”

The proposal will be been tabled before BMC’s standing committee at an upcoming meet.
