Commissioner Office, 1997
The commissioner Office was amongst the earliest purpose-built structures of the British Raj. Completed in 1850, almost a year after the annexation of the Punjab, it continues to house the offices of the Commissioner, Lahore Division. This and allied offices are the administrative headquarters which supervise the working of four districts: Kasur, Lahore, Okara and Sheikhupura.  
 
National College of Arts, 1997
The red-brick façade stands, fortress like, guarding the inner sanctum where the arts and crafts have been taught for more than a century. This is the exterior as seen from the Mall by the common man. The early morning rendition, with a slight mist and no figure, accords the building an agelessness.
