Almaty Science Campus in Kazakhstan

OMA designed this ‘Naukograd’ technopolis as a new campus for the Kazakh British Technical University. It includes a residential community and public zone with shops and entertainment. OMA sought to "shape the community" while taking advantage of the beautiful natural surroundings in its remote location. This campus takes the function of a self-assuming settlement and divides it into four buildings. An elevated central circulation system connects these pieces. Each module bar is flexible and adaptive to the natural topography. In typical OMA style, the campus derives its architectural form deeply from function while opening the occupant to the surroundings.

The diagram below explain's the method of arranging programs from dominant to secondary objects in the environment.
