The Jayaprakash Narayan Interpretation Centre is an Indian museum, dedicated to the life and work of the late independence activist of the same name, that features an eye-catching wedge-like shape that makes it look much like an anvil.

The structure of this particular Indian museum makes use of a pair of triangle-shaped facades and a stepped roof that visitors can climb in order to access gorgeous views of the surrounding city of Lucknow. The museum is designed as part of a complex including a convention center, and will host a number of exhibitions about the famous social activist.

The anvil-like shape of this Indian museum is both designed to attract attention and give off a message of stability and empowerment, a fine example of architectural language being influenced by a person's philosophy and message.
