Architecture Symbolic of Dynamic Motion
As an integral part of the surrounding auto drome architecture and blending into it, the Courtyard Marriot Hotel articulates a similar dynamic motion in its architectural language. Its form sweeps forward in an inward-looking curve around a semi-circular forecourt at the end of the linearly disposed AutoMall. Its aerodynamic form has a glazed front façade which afford panoramic views of the entire racetrack in front to its inmates. While the building assembly has followed the cost-effective repetitive modular formula employed in such large projects it has retained a distinctive presence through its innovative form and architecture.
