dc.description.abstractAn investigation of Roanoke's particular needs and potentialities for a civic auditorium was the initial step in the development of this thesis. Members of the city government, members of community organizations, and other interested citizens were consulted as to their views on the facilities required in the proposed structure. The Roanoke Redevelopment and Housing Authority offered constructive suggestions concerning the site selection. These interviews revealed the need for three principal facilities: (1) an arena for 6000 persons to accommodate conventions, trade shows, and sporting events, (2) a concert hall for 3000 persons, and (3) a little theatre with seating for 600 persons. Perhaps the major aim in the design of this civic auditorium has been the desire to develop a harmonious grouping of these three major elements, and the desire that each building should present from.the exterior a clear, honest expression of its function. This latter desire brought about in each of the buildings a close relationship between structure and function. The structural systems have resulted from the architectural concept and approach to the functions of the buildings. Technical and functional considerations have been discussed in detail, and drawings have been prepared to thoroughly explain the final design.en
