Currently, universities are often perceived as elitist and isolated from the surrounding community.

At the heart of The Water Campus is where the non-elitist university thrives for equality for both the students and neighbouring residents.

The central island has been completely devoted to communal events which aims to break down barriers between the university and the residents.

The Water Campus also features a series of playful micro-nodes which aim to welcome the neighbouring community into the campus and provide a physical platform for cultural and social exchange.
