American University of Afghanistan Master Plan
YGH completed the AUAf Master Plan in collaboration with Kabul-based Studio Zarnegar. The four-year English-language university’s master plan focuses on efficient use of land and buildings and adheres to traditional Islamic architecture principles, reinterpreted in a contemporary vernacular to support maximum student and faculty interaction and learning. The design incorporates sustainable design features including natural ventilation, daylighting, and water conservation. The program for the University includes phased development to accommodate up to 5,000 FTE on-campus resident students over the next twenty years.
