A new campus for students, designed by students

Scheduled for inauguration in 2022, our new eco-friendly campus was designed by students to incorporate social design and use the natural campus environment for maximum inspiration. Initiated with crowd-sourcing, the project called for proposals from architectural schools all over the world.
