Premabhai Hall

Ahmedabad, India

Year: 1976

What if in contemporary times one has to design a building around a 14th century urban-scape studded with history? Should the building radiate as a cultural place?

With more than a century of history, the Gujarat Vidhya Sabha decided to replace its old hall and recreate a new high-tech activity centre.

Designed as a main socio-cultural place, the main hall was elevated to generate public participation at the lower level and to create the new entity.
