Folded Plate Structure a thin-walled building structure of the shell type. Folded plate structures consist of flat components, or plates, that are interconnected at some dihedral angle.

Structures composed of rectangular plates are said to be prismatic.

In modern construction practice the most widely used folded plate structures are made of cast-in-situ or pre-cast reinforced concrete (including pre-stressed and reinforcedcement structures). The structures are used as roofs for industrial and public buildings. The main advantage of folded plate structures over other shells (such as cylindrical) is the simplicity of manufacture.

A series of rigid frames in reinforced concrete folded plates provide the outer shell to this hall. Vertical folds are 17m high, increasing in depth from 1.15m at the base to 2.4m at the top with a constant plate thickness of 15cm.

Horizontal folds are 2.4m deep and span 33.5m with a plate thickness of 10cm increasing to 15cm near the supports. Inside the hall, a 'seating bowl' with a capacity of 700 is supported on an independent structure. Sculptural columns and cantilevers of this bowl dominate the lobby area.

The hall, located on the banks of Sabarmati River, is supported on individual and strip footings resting on a sandy strata.
