Rukmini Arangam, Kalakshetra


Kalakshetra Campus, a centre for artistic endeavour, lost the bamboo and thatched structure of Rukmini Arangam to a cyclone that hit Chennai. Founded in 1936 by visionary Rukmini Devi Arundale with the vision of imparting the true spirit of Art to the young, the theatre has been redesigned by increasing the area and the height of the structure. The objective of the project was to retain the look and feel of the older structure, yet conservation with the use of thatch was unrealisable as school buildings with thatch roofs have been banned in Tamil Nadu.
