The building shows a direct link between the technology of construction and cultural tradition of place.

The formal axial organization of the building especially in assembly block, VIP block and the Central courtyard with Ashok stambha is highly prominent.

The courtyard system is re interpreted to efficiently organize meeting and office spaces bringing outdoor vegetation and light into the building and enabling it to ‘breathe’

Morphology of openings is successfully integrated with the surface material treatment and shading devices.
