SV Auditorium, The saddle-shaped Hyperbolic paraboloid structure was created by SL Chitale in perfect harmony with the Tirumala hills.
Chitale & Son has deployed various superior technologies to fulfill its functional needs. After wind tunnel tests the unique 3inches thick shell structure at Sri Venkateshwara University was constructed to shelter an auditorium of 600 seats indoor and 350 seats outdoor.
This complex shell structure was created in the 1970’s when there were no technological facilities that are available today.
Dr. Peter Scriver and Dr. Srivatsava recognize this as one of the pioneering designs in their recent book
“ INDIA- Modern Architectures in History ”
