University of Science and Technology
Irbid, Jordan
The buildings are laid out along two main spines: the academic and the social cores. The latter connects the university to the neighbouring community. A 72 m2 square grid determines a series of successive courtyards, placed at a 45 degrees angle in relation to the two principal spines, ensuring internal circulation patterns.

External pedestrian and vehicular traffic follows a secondary grid, superimposed diagonally on the first one. This arrangement will allow future expansion. The units laid out along the first grid feature vertical circulation cores at each corner encasing sanitary facilities and lifts, while the rest of the structures are lower, and spaces within them have been conceived in a flexible manner so as to accommodate the various required functions.
