Abstract:The assembly hall described herein was built among a set of multistory buildings and residence halls for the new campus of the University of Havana. An important feature of this project is the combination of construction methods used in its erection. Prefabrication, lift slab and conventional cast-in-place procedures were used to lower the cost of construction. The structure of the building was so designed that erection procedures and some of the design details necessary for a successful construction were used by the architects with great advantage. Close cooperation between designers resulted in an esthetic structure, the description of the design and construction of which are discussed in this paper.
