When time passes by, there is a need for public interventions in the city to be re-interpreted so that it responds with its present urban conditions in a better way and also it can contribute to the city life around.
Thakor Bhai hall is the most used drama hall in the city which hosts events with a seating capacity of 721. While their typology requires performance spaces to be a closed box, they are also inherently public spaces. The challenge is to be able to house this instrument along with public spaces in this rich context i.e. Law Garden which is absent in the present design.
The design brief is to re-design Thakor Bhai hall considering the present issues faced by the hall and its immediate context. The primary function remains the same i.e. the auditorium.
