College of Engineering
The College of Engineering is one of the core flagships of Qatar University. The design pursued Qatar Sustainability Assessment System (QSAS) as part of the design to demonstrate the sustainability of the Project within the context of the Qatar built environment. The college’s 6 departments were distributed into 3 main zones. Each zone has its own integrated services required.
Creating a balance between open spaces, semi shaded and fully shaded spaces, forms a smooth pleasant transition from /to the main mass, ensured the blending between the existing context and the College of Engineering interior landscape. the architecture responded to the culture by segregating the male from the female zones through a concourse on the outside and a wooden screen mimicing the “mashrabeya” concept providing visual privacy.
