Therefore, the renowned architect Late Mr. Laurie Baker, who was world famous for employing new and innovative technologies for constructing ecofriendly buildings, was requested to design the buildings. He proposed to construct the building for SACON by utilizing optimum space, natural light, and breeze and also providing open atriums in each building to develop gardens.
