In the Tagore Memorial Hall, the city honours both Tagore, the legendary artist and Tagore, the towering personality.
The Tagore Memorial Hall was designed by Balkrishna Doshi in 1966. The building is a piece of brutalist architecture.
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.
