Its architect, Bimal Patel, has this to say about it:

“The complex is located in the institutional enclave of western Ahmedabad, surrounded by fine examples of modern architecture: the Indian Institute of Management, the ATIRA building, the School of Architecture: and the Physical Research Laboratory, to mention a few. The design for the AMA building is wholeheartedly modern. It eschews what might broadl be termed as post-modern concerns, which, over the last fifteen years, have preoccupied many architects in India, Being disenchanted with the assault of kitsch all around, and the seemingly widespread belief that modernism and all that it stood for should be thrown out of the window, the opportunity to design the AMA complex was used to unashamedly explore the modernist way of doing things, The same approach was followed in designing the building’s interior. For the design team, this was a rejuvenating experience, convincing us that what is needed today, is a return to the largely unrealized project of modernization and modernism,”

The complex enables AMA to provide numerous key institutional facilities under one roof.
