Technology has helped in the evolution of how spaces are imagined and subsequently designed for its users. Exploring and understanding the investigation of Materiality, Technology, Innovations and Form Development is a key part of Architectural study.

Taking inspiration from the core essences of these scientific advancements and innovations, the students designed an envelope or shell for a tennis stadium that houses two courts and viewing stands for the audience. Through this project, the students were introduced to newer dimensions o design and characteristics of materials.  It challenged them to think for long spanned spaces, and consider the different aspects of materiality that each technology has to offer.
