RMJM to design two Libyan campuses

  • Comment
Globetrotter RMJM has been picked to design two huge university campuses in Libya.
RMJM's Global Education Studio was selected by the country’s Organisation for the Development of Administrative Centres to design facilities for the 7th of October University at its Bani Walid ‘satellite’ campus, and for Al-Asmariya University in Zliten.

The 50ha scheme at Bani Walid (pictured) will house around 3,200 students and feature 180,000m2 of new buildings, including a library, a mosque, accommodation, and athletic facilities.

Meanwhile, the 90ha project on the outskirts of the coastal town of Zliten, 160km east of the capital Tripoli, will serve 4,600 students.

Gordon Hood, director of RMJM’s Global Education Studio, said: ‘In its effort to expand its higher education system, Libya is drawing from some of the best campus models around the world – Ivy League and world-class institutions.

‘Our goal is to design a modern sustainable campus appropriate for Libya’s culture, tradition and climate.’
