A dream come true. It's a concert-hall. It's a theatre. It's a dance chamber.
It's a lecture room. It's a communication platform. It's a showcase of talent.
All kinds of possibilities for creative learning open up when you take a look at this spectacular, futuristic auditorium, which was inaugurated on the 9th January 2004 by Dr. G. Parameshwar, Hon'ble Minister for Higher Education and Information, and dedicated by the Rt. Rev. Vasanthakumar, Chairman, Board of Directors, Bishop Cotton Boys' School and Bishop, Karnataka Central Diocese.
Designed by the well-known architect Zachariah and constructed by builder M. Purushottam, the Bishop George Edward Lynch Cotton Auditorium combines the gracious elegance and enduring quality of a Greek amphitheatre covered with a roof, with a spectacular, futuristic design.
The vision of Dr. Ebenezer, it has come up in answer to a need for a space that would seat the students and their parents.
Not a single pillar obstructs the panoramic view of the sweeping, curved 1200 sq. ft. stage with a height of 33 ft. The V-shaped, fully air-conditioned is tiered with row upon row of seats for 1,400 people. It has state-of-the-art infrastructure, back-up power, superior acoustics and the latest technology for sound and light effects, required to conduct any kind of performance - dance, music or theatre. It has a cafeteria, restrooms, VIP rooms, green rooms, control cabins, backstage rooms ... everything possible has been thought of, including a one-stop commercial centre that contains a bank, a book-store and a parking bay.
Lush greenery, towering rain trees and teak trees surround the auditorium, which is second to none in the country, providing the school with facilities that address the needs of the future.
The new auditorium brings a rich new perspective to the exciting, expanding, evolving world of education.
At Cottons, we're preparing our students for the stage of life. Making learning an enriching experience.
For what is learning without inspiration?
