Qatar Foundation (QF) for Education, Science and Community Development commissioned Master Planning services to double the size of their existing Education City Campus – one that offers a prestigious and comprehensive educational experience of international stature in Doha. The original Education City Master Plan was developed in the early decade of the 21st century (early 2000) and subsequently over the years, other supplementary Master Plans and guidelines were produced.
Moriyama & Teshima Architects provided a comprehensive planning framework for the future expansion of the site, which encompassed approximately 1750 Hectares in the Al Rayyan area of Doha, Qatar. The site is divided into the North and South Campus and is composed of buildings already in operation, under construction and others in the planning stages. The Master Plan Integrator Project is envisaged as a living document — providing a dynamic framework to guide Education City’s future growth by creating a flexible framework for strategic development and holistic decision making.
Education City is currently at a critical juncture: planned growth is increasing the campus population and development footprint; planned transit investments are creating greater opportunities for connectivity; and is positioned to become a campus of the future, forging research relationships with other institutions.
Education City Master Plan Integration is rooted in an integrated process that considers urban design, architecture, landscape, infrastructure, transportation, and other allied disciplines.
