The inspiration of this national competition winning design was the architectural motifs of the Shrine of Shah Rukn-Alam, a monument which is recognized as an icon of Multan City. The uses of Fair face masonry with typical Multani Blue tiles details embellish the facade.

The long narrow site located on an old storm water course approximately  10 feet below the road level was utilized optimally by construction of basements and incorporating the lower seating of the auditorium at this level.

The construction details include appropriate insulation techniques of cavity walls and  roof insulation to cater to the harsh climate of Multan

An overall urban plan was developed and the original requirements incorporated an auditorium, art gallery and an institute for teaching Arts and Crafts. However financial constraints resulted in construction of the auditorium only and adapting the spaces within this structure to accommodate a small art gallery and art classes were accommodated in  multipurpose space to be used as  rehearsal rooms  as part of the back stage areas. Furthermore the completion time took almost 10 years due to financial constraints of the Government.
