Master Plan, Auditorium, Dormitories, Laboratories, Instruction and Recreation Facilities for East Pakistan Agricultural University

A master plan for this campus (one-third of the campus has been completed by others) orients all buildings in a north-south direction in order to catch the maximum amount of breeze. Venturi action and air scoops in section and plan are incorporated and account for the opening and closing character of the design.
