Design for new residential and faculty buildings for the University of Al Nahrain, Baghdad. The design posits a central courtyard which acts as a focus for landscaping, entrances, circulation, shared cafes, and meeting rooms - the communal heart. The buildings adopt a common material palette but have radically different characters: teaching spaces project into and engage the courtyard; the residential wing is introverted with enigmatic screened bedroom bays (as traditional Baghdadi shanashils).
