Sites International landscape design contributes to AUC New Cairo Campus higher standing in UI Green Metric University Ranking
Universitas Indonesia (UI) Green Metric ranking rates universities in six main indicators. Three indicators, energy and climate, waste, and water, were integral to Sites International sustainability vision in the master plan and landscape design for the 260-acre American University New Cairo Campus.
The design envisions a tightly-knit learning environment that encompasses indoor and outdoor spaces. The central spine serves as the backbone of the campus, while geometrically-configured architectural features in the form of gateways, plazas and courtyards, subtly introduce new spaces along the course of the spine. Every landscape decision was made with a limited irrigation water budget in mind, use of local materials, energy conservation, climate condition, and decrease in carbon emission.
