Rochester University


Rochester University | Dubai

At the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) in Dubai, the brief was to design a campus master plan that embodies the vision of RIT as a global institution. At the same time, it was also necessary to take the local climatic and cultural conditions of the Middle East into account. The main campus of the RIT is in New York, with the Dubai campus having opened in 2008 and its current expansion scheduled for completion by 2023. A domed building with a sustainable cladding consisting of a brick facade was created for the Innovation Center at the heart of the new campus. The shingle facade in natural red creates a harmonious unit with the surrounding buildings in terracotta beige.
