Completed: Carnegie Mellon University in Qatar (Education City)

Designed by renowned architects Legorreta and Legorreta, the building will have at its core an open three-story atrium that will serve as a town square. Filled with natural light, the atrium will be home to a food court, assembly area and expansive walkway. Situated on the main east-west passage through Education City, the walkway will be alive with trees and will serve as a meeting place for everyone in Education City.

The event was a ceremonial groundbreaking. Actual excavation and construction is expected to begin in July. Building completion is currently slated for January 2008.

About the Architects
Known for the ability to conceive of spaces that suit needs, appetites and emotions, Legorreta and Legorreta combines pure and timeless forms that instill clarity into complicated projects. Using light, water and dramatic colors, spaces are designed to intensify the personal experience of the people in the buildings. Even in large complexes, like the Chiron Laboratories, or the Egade Graduate School, privacy and simplicity is preserved. The application of color is a most important priority, especially in projects set in their native Mexico. All of these ingredients integrate architecture, landscaping and interior decoration into a single discipline that respects the place and the traditions.

Legorreta and Legorreta also designed the Texas A&M University at Qatar building, which is currently under construction next to the Carnegie Mellon site. For more information, visit http://www.legorretalegorreta.com.

Texas and Georgetown university are accomodated in the LAS Buildiing for the mean time. As for Carnegie mellon and Weill COrnell are accomodated in the Weil Cornell university which has been ready for a while.
Texas university will be ready by January, I guess, and as for CMU, construction will start soon and will be located in-between Texas and Weill Cornell.

Yes, those are nice facilities. But currently the university operates at Cornell College I think or Texas A and M. But, they have less than a 100 students I think or somehting of that range.
