"A world-class curriculum and environment of collaboration"
The School of Public and International Affairs at the ADA University campus accommodates a rich and complex program of administrative, academic, and student amenity spaces organized into three distinct forms. The teaching areas include classrooms and seminar rooms. Administrative spaces include faculty and staff offices. A dynamic, copper-clad ellipse houses a two-story TV studio/gathering space, and a student resource center/open reading room. The third floor features the “General Assembly,” a space modeled after the UN Security Council, which accommodates more than 50 participants. The forms are connected by public space defined by a sinuous glass wall. The building’s orientation addresses future campus development as well as the adjacent Dede Gorgud Park.
