The master plan of ICTS understands and accommodates the workings of a high-tech Institution fostering scientific discussions. A diagonal axis highlights open spaces leading from the entry plaza of the academic block to the open-air amphitheater including an exhibition walk in the entrance plaza flanked by academic and seminar blocks. The inverted-cone form of the library is multifunctional, containing classrooms and office spaces.
The large green central space is the lung edged by the sports fields, the campus is largely pedestrian-friendly with all zones in a 5 minute walking. The scale of the buildings lends themselves well to the institutional, intimate character required of the campus.
