The American Institute of Architects (AIA) and its Committee on the Environment (COTE) have selected King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) as one of the top 10 examples of sustainable architecture and green design solutions that protect and enhance the environment. The project will be honoured at the AIA 2010 National Convention and Design Exposition in Miami. The new campus of KAUST, located in Thuwal, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, is an upcoming international, graduate-level research university. It has integrated sustainable measures into the site planning, the community, the building design and the campus operations, thus becoming the country’s first LEED certified project and the world’s largest LEED Platinum project.
