The Industrial Finance Corporation of India (IFCI) is revitalising their property on C.G. Road, an economic artery of, Ahmedabad which has earned its name also as a shopping avenue. The building is located on one of the major cross roads which has a big number of pedestrians. The design for the open area is developed with the architect to cater to the people in the form of art gallery and cafe. The landscape design converts usual stepped plinth into slope. The entire front periphery invites pedestrians as well as allows ease of access for elderly and physically challenged. Since the building is situated in the corner, the cut through the building becomes a natural thoroughfare for pedestrians where the gallery is situated along with a cafe. The details are devised to allow exhibition panels to be supported on the ground as well as from the podium ceiling. The open space (thoroughfare) is a flexible area and is aimed at frequent exhibition by city artists.
