Nalsar University Sports Pavilion
Hyderabad, India
This pavilion aims to be not just a viewing platform but an engaging multi-functional space in its own right. Seating 500 people, it comprises a reinforced concrete base with twinned vertical masts of porous steel and a suspended metal roof. A dais at the top of the tiers serves as a stage for gatherings on the playing field, and a sunken court at ground level provides a more informal stage and casual meeting place for students, a canteen and shops keeping this area vibrant at all times. This is one of Hyderabad’s first suspended cable structures, and all its steel joinery components were made in a local workshop, introducing new expertise.
