2. Software program Development Block, Infosys – Unique Buildings by Hafeez Contractor

Location: Mysuru, Karnataka

Infosys is one of the unique buildings designed by Hafeez Contractor. It is known for its jagged facades and asymmetrical fragments. The architect was inspired by a tremendously contoured site.
