The architectural design concept consists of the following basic principles and philosophy:

The Study Center consists of classrooms for the Faculty of Architecture and Planning, Faculty of Engineering, Faculty of Fine and Applied Arts, and Faculty of Education. It reflects the philosophy and the concept of promoting learning innovation “Teacher for pupils” and a prototype of a learning facility that inspires imaginations and creativities, wisdoms and spirits in order to create new borderless leaders of change.

The Community of Learning Hub
The building located in the main axis of Thammasat University – Rangsit Campus. As the Community of Learning Hub there are multiple entrances accessing to activity spaces for students to socialize and learn to make friendships.

Architecture Encourages Multidisciplinary Learning
Intending to support and nurture a new generation of teachers and academics to believe in social development and continuous learning, the overall design of the project creates a learning community. The educational space promotes interactions and learning exchanges in a variety of styles while encouraging a sense of community. The building also provides different learning environments, from private spaces for reflection, self-study, or small groups to social spaces for learning through interaction to communal space where learning happens through discussion and conversation. The overall space is flexible enough to accommodate different types of learning activities and emphasize the prayer room as an example of critical learning within the organization.

Green for Mind and Body
The architecture are designed to be visible as green walls and green spaces around the open well to create a pleasant learning atmosphere.
