Tagore Memorial Theatrex

Ahmedabad, India

Year: 1967


In this memorial theatre, the city honors both Tagore, the legendary artist and Tagore, the towering personality.

A large entrance with its transparent foyer reveals details of the voluminous concrete structure and enables both informal and formal interactions among performers, critics and the public.

The detached bowl-shaped seating sans balcony adds greater intimacy to artists despite of the exposed concrete structure and the floating acoustical clouds. The folded plate roof of 110ft span, incorporates the services.
