Challenge

Our client wanted to help shape Saudi Arabia’s future with a progressive institution. The country is moving away from the oil industry and focusing on technology and education, so our design for the new Global Business School building needed to champion innovation and social engagement.

Solution

To encourage social interaction, we created co-educational facilities that ensured no social boundaries or hierarchy could be assumed at the business school. By integrating sustainable features, we also integrated a sense of forward-thinking innovation. 

Result

This new building in the prominent business school establishes a presence for the client’s brand, creating an identity that is equal in stature to Cornell and Harvard Universities. The design embraces Saudi culture while emphasising technology, innovation and youthful energy to create value within society.
