An essential feature of the masterplan is the opportunity for faculties to be placed in close physical proximity to each other and to the new Hospital. The masterplan concept is that of a ‘Citadel of Learning’. This concept visualises a highly people – or citizen – focused environment, rich in a variety of contemplative and more open public spaces all framed by ‘fingers’ of Learning.


The RIU has a desire for the University to make a strong statement of its presence in the local community, Islamabad and in fact the whole of Pakistan. How the proposal would be viewed from all around the surrounding district has had a major influence on the development of the masterplan.
