Goal: To accommodate the different cultures that the AIU brings into its campus with the idea of visual connectivity. Language and cultural barriers can be present when many cultures come in contact within space and between spaces.

Design Intent: The intent of the design is to have student, professors, faculty, and visitors engage each other, and the urban scape, with vision when they are separated by spaced. The product of having spaces that require visual connection will create opportunities for the inhabitants to socialize and create a habitat with a sense of community.
