The vision behind this multi discipline eco-campus is to bring the realms
of science and technology together within an inspiring natural landscape.
With both high school and higher education students on the same campus,
an innovative opportunity exists to align programs from both schools, to
bring together high school students and graduate researchers in
collaboration in an innovative STEM environment.
This project is designed to create a unique education and research presence in the world’s
scientific community. The RAIST portion of the campus will contain a separate building for each
discipline, with the first floor in all containing campus-shared learning and lecture facilities.
On the upper two levels of these research buildings, the professors’ work space will be
adjacent to the post doctorate students and researchers area, and
very close to their respective labs.

This science and technology based high school with student housing will be constructed
on the eastern portion of the site. The curriculum aligns with the architecture in order to
provide opportunities for learning anywhere and everywhere within the building.
Everything in this school is aimed at teaching the “collective brain” and follows the
cutting-edge concepts and design principles that support 21st century learning.

This commons area shows the way the hexagon has become a unified design theme that's subtle and sophisticated.
The cafeteria has windows and doors that offer a strong connection to the adjacent outdoor spaces.
The signature tower that anchors the site is the replica of a molecule, an apt symbol for a science campus.
