New University Campus, Abu Dhabi, Campus DevelopmentAl Habtoor Murray and Roberts
This project involves the design of an entire new campus for a university in Abu Dhabi. The campus design responds to the immediate need for the university due to the rapid growth of the Emirate.
The environmental response led to a sophisticated, light and highly articulated design where traditional middle eastern ventilation devices were used to provide cool, humidified air to central courtyards. These modern day 'malqafs' provided dramatic spaces which respond to the setting whilst creating inspirational environments for students and academia alike.
