The AUM Building is conveniently located between spacious shaded parking areas with separate designations for students and staff/faculty/visitors. Special attention has been paid to ensure that all disability parking spots are located within the shortest possible distance from entrances to campus buildings. Apart from the AUM Building's main entrance, there are numerous smaller entrances spread throughout the structure to facilitate the smooth flow of students in and out of the building.
The AUM Building is the “heart” of the university campus as it houses many major components of AUM including the AUM Library, E-Library, Student Affairs and Counseling Department, Student Activities Center, student clubs and societies, and the food court. Faculty offices are located on the first and second floors and most leisure/extracurricular components - including the food court and student societies - are located in the basement, which opens out to the outdoor Roman theater.
The impact of the AUM Building’s structure is two-fold: the building offers a calm, quiet environment suitable for research and studies, and provides a dynamic and positive setting for both intellectual stimulation and student activities.

The Sabah Al Ahmad Center for Giftedness and Creativity Rawda Academy School for Girls is a unique school in the fact that it is specialized in teaching higher level gifted students. The middle and high school are organized in a way that allow separation and interaction depending on program. The concept evolved from a puzzle, the quintessential learning tool, and developed into a form that influences learning. The use of color is also important and studied in the design allowing students to take full advantage of what the school has to offer.
Starting off the concept was the idea that programs could be shared and separated simultaneously. For a school with two different age groups, both division and sharing are required. The concept revolves around bubble diagramming on the site, which can be seen as starting to look like a puzzle. In a puzzle, some pieces fit and some clash, resulting in both shared spaces as well as spaces that are not connected or linked. Other elements are explored such as color, form, typologies, landscaping, and more in relation to the center and its program.
