The Department of Art, Culture and Youth (DACY) along with the Building Construction Department (BCD) of the Government of the State of Bihar is planning to develop an iconic museum in Patna, which stands on the site of the capital of India’s ancient Magadhan Empire, Pataliputra. This new facility, the Bihar Museum, will focus on the contributions made by this empire and the entire region of Bihar to the evolution of history and civilization in the Indian subcontinent and throughout Asia. It will be developed on a 13.9 acre site located on Bailey Road in Patna.
Lord Cultural Resources is the master planning consultant for this museum and they also directed the architectural selection process. The architecture selection process undertaken by the BCD on behalf of DACY has finally produced a winner for designing the new Bihar Museum in Patna. The competition held on 28th and 29th November 2011 was evaluated by an Architectural Selection Committee (ASC) which included international as well as Indian participation and included architects, professionals from related disciplines and representatives of the sponsor.
The jury was chaired by the Chief Secretary, Government of Bihar, Mr. Navin Kumar, who was the non-voting chair and comprised of:
1. Mr. Anjani Kumar Singh, Principal Secretary, Department of Human Resource Development and Nodal Officer for the project
2. Mr. C. Lalsawta, Principal Secretary, DACY, Bihar

The architectural selection process was conducted in two stages:
Stage 1 Request for Expression of Interest (EOI)
Stage 2 Request for Proposals (RFP)
The first stage was open to Indian and international architects and this process attracted 26 leading architectural firms from around the world. This was the first time in India that an architectural competition for a museum facility has garnered this level of world class architects.
