The Water Gardens, designed by Sir Frederick Gibberd with Gerry Perrin of the Harlow Development Corporation, was opened in 1963. The gardens' three parallel terraces incorporate Mitchell’s seven reliefs/mosaics alongside canals, fountains and ponds. The building, specifically incorporating the reliefs, was given listed building status in 2001.

Mitchell has worked on a range of buildings in new towns, including Stevenage, Basildon, Hatfield and Cwmbran, producing his trademark abstract architectural features for schools and for residential and commercial developments. He has pioneered sculptural techniques which utilise new materials and technologies and has produced sculptures in plastics, concrete, wood, marble, brick and fibreglass.
