This multi-use building is an 800-seat auditorium that is part of an International School. The building’s design fuses the varied activities - pre-function areas, administration areas, exhibition areas into a four level building.The building’s interpretation has been influenced by the typology of ancient temples wherein the ‘pradakshina patha’ at the periphery is the public area of the temple and the internal ‘garba griha’ houses the main deity and worship areas.

The pre function areas are akin to the ‘pradakshina patha’ and the auditorium enclosure is likened to the ‘garba griha’. The pre function area and common areas have been designed to serve as temporary exhibition areas.
