The brief was to design a community pavilion for a small village in the architectural style of a famous architect. I was assigned Tadao Ando. The project required us to analyse the works of the architects in detail and understand what they are doing in their designs and why. 

After studying Ando’s designs I found out that he is fond of geometrical shapes, uses concrete in great amount and tries to form a link between his building and nature.

My design is made of three simple rectangle concrete structures. The main building has a lecture theatre, also can be used as an exhibiton hall, the adjacent one has an office and additional facilities and the last detached building has a cafe that faces the large shallow pool that surrounds the whole structure.
