M. A. Chidambaram Stadium

Project Completed

Chepauk Stadium

Chennai's ground at Chepauk, also known as the MA Chidambaram Stadium, is famous in world cricket and has a long history of exciting matches. However, since the construction of the stadium in the early seventies, the characteristic 'swing' of the ball created by the incoming sea-breeze which led to so much post-lunch excitement has dwindled away. Our proposals create a series of twelve stands set on top of a continuous lower bowl of terracing. The sea-breeze is then able to flow through the horizontal gap between the lower terrace and the upper stands, through the vertical gaps between the stands and across the playing surface. Stands on the western edge of the site are reduced in scale, but follow a similar section, to allow greater air flow from the east.
