MRF headquarters

MRF is a rubber and tire manufacturing company based in Madras, India. Rather than build a high-rise tower to show off the commercial position of the company as the leading tire manufacturer in India, Charles Correa designed this building to convey monumentality through a single large pillar supporting the front of the building. Part of the reason for this choice was that Madras has few high-rise buildings, so Correa designed this building to express its significance in other ways than height.

According to Charles Correa’s website, the various levels of offices in the building connect to a central atrium via stairs. The roof hosts a large, terraced garden as well.
