Kuwait University - Kuwait
The College of Business Administration (CBA) will be a unique new teaching and research facility housing eight major departments. The CBA is planned for a total of 4,000 students, both graduate and undergraduate, with separate campuses for male and female students and will include classrooms, lecture/case study rooms, exhibition hall, an administration office suite, faculty offices and conference rooms, prayer rooms, food service, lounges and resource centers. The basis of the design is to capture the oasis and draw it into the college by creating unique internal landscapes. The building wraps around a large, enclosed central atrium and interior garden, a place for discourse among the students and faculty. The project is designed to attain LEED Silver certification.
