The 3 storey building is designed to have a skylight spine that runs linear through the building flanked by the classrooms and laboratories on the either side. The Moorish architecture portrays the old governmental institutions of the 50s and 60s that aptly reflects the assimilations of architecture of the East and West and the Old and New.
