This building is located in the southern section of the University campus, in the area called Sheikh Munis, and spreads from the central avenue towards the western slopes. The two stages of the School building comprise: teaching, administration and faculty areas as well as interview rooms also intended for use by the general public. The cafeteria and lecture hall, together with the central plaza, constitute unifying elements from a structural aspect and are complementary from an educational and social aspect.
Adjacent to the central avenue, the building spreads westwards with the landscape viewed both from the building itself and from its surroundings. As an independent and self-contained unit it integrates well with the University’s new construction plans and with its overall design.
The building’s architecture is unified and self-contained with restrained use of a minimum selection of materials –chipped stone facing on its facades and textured plaster on the walls of public areas and lecture halls.
The most important zone, the “heart” of the building, has been created by exploitation of the central landscaped atrium open to most levels. It incorporates a small amphitheatre, meeting areas and galleries on its various levels, all of which provide the visitor with a wide choice of venues.
