Benoy Shares Their Design for a New Global Business School in Saudi Arabia

Slated to open in 2020, Benoy has released their design for a central academic building in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. It will house the Global Business School, an educational hub that will attract Saudi and international business students through executive education programs in collaboration with Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School of Harvard University (USA), SC Johnson College of Business of Cornell University (USA), and Imperial College Business School (UK).

The six-level building will be composed of two distinct wings connected by an enclosed atrium. Sporting smooth contours and rounded corners, the north wing will contain faculty offices, teaching spaces, and the innovation center. While the larger, south wing surrounds it with student dining halls, an auditorium, sports area, and a knowledge center.

According to the firm, the layout was designed to foster social interaction and minimize hierarchy and social boundaries within the school community.
