Note: We came on to the scene after the wall by Abhikram and Nimish Patel was completed. Lower level articulations of the wall with the stage and integration of the steel catwalk and lighting structure was designed by indigo architects during the design of the new theatre as also were the details and gate towards the river. The Mrinalini Sarabhai Gallery and Vikram Sarabhai Gallery was done by  HCP as a retaining wall and space along on the river front edge reclaiming the lost edge to the riverfront development.
