Paris-based Lacaton & Vassal is considered a leading innovator of residential and municipal projects with a commitment to issues of sustainability. Inaugurated in late 2006, the Management Science University is located within an evolving urban context, and aimed to become a unique yet central site of the city's urban landscape. The project covered four blocks and unfolded at different levels around a square, revealing a number of arcades and interior courtyards. Municipal and social services are shared by all four buildings on the ground and first floors, and each block houses an independent academic department from the second ?oor up.
