The building provides a mixed use educational and cultural space which is set over three floors that step in at each level to create a ziggurat style structure. The setting of the building is adjacent to extensive landscaped areas and in close proximity to the Campus Lake. Internally all of the building spaces are organised around a three storey atrium space.
