snohetta: gambia university

snohetta create a unified vision for gambia’s higher level educational institutions with the new university
of gambia. the new university will relocate and unite three of gambia’s existing formal institutions and one
university in a single campus for 15,000 students. in addition to designing with the educational experience
in mind, snohetta also want the project to set new environmental standards. part of this plan involves a solar
park for generating energy, a waste management centre and locally done water harvesting. because the
masterplan for the university was previously undeveloped, there was no infrastructure, allowing the
architects to re-invent the established western conventions. snohetta worked to develop a campus based on
gambian traditions in architecture and culture.
