Noted architect Vikram Lall, who designed the iconic Buddha Smriti Park in Patna that was inaugurated by Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama a decade ago, has died in Brussels, his family said on Sunday. Lall, who was part of the team that designed the Akshardham Temple in Delhi, was also an author and scholar of Buddhist architecture, and a connoisseur of Indian classical music. "We are shattered," said his 85yearold father J K Lall, a veteran architect himself. "He had recently come to India to see me as I was hospitalised, and then returned to Brussels. He was doing fine then," said his father, who is also the convener of the Patna Chapter of Delhibased heritage body INTACH.
