Designed to accommodate 3,700 students from the region to provide a co-educational, inter-disciplinary education, the master plan creates an environment designed to help students thrive. The vibrant pedestrian-oriented campus is organized around a central open space that facilitates flow and interactions among the communities, while simultaneously creating a shared space for students, faculty, and staff to connect. The master plan set the vision that was implemented by Ayers Saint Gross. Inspired by the culture of the region, the buildings are welcoming, human-scaled, and define a variety of open outdoor rooms that encourage interaction and recreation. In order to easily navigate through the campus and provide a distinctive overall look, each building’s size, scale, and aesthetic identify the activities and programs that occur in the building. The campus landscape creates a learning oasis with lush green colors in the middle of the desert.
