Designed by famous Japanese architect, Kenzō Tange,[2] under the consultation of the EPA, the complex was engineered and built by the CDA Engineering and Siemens Engineering.[3] The building was part of an effort by the government of Pakistan to incorporate modernism into the architecture of important government buildings, for which several world-renowned architects were invited; Tange, after initially rejecting the invitation, ultimately agreed to participate.[2]
