Designed by George Kontalonis, Jared Ramsdell, Nassim Eshaghi and Rana Zureikat, Code [9] is therefore challenging the traditional campus typology that exists today, by taking a good look into education, society, environment and networks. Designed for New York, the project deals with a proto-campus that is not site specific but context specific and it is dealing with urban sites that have embedded culture and activities, relationship on the micro and macro level, social behavior and architectural typology. The design proposes a deploy-able system that can reconfigure into any environment and function as a flexible and interconnected campus. The synthesis is a new definition of a campus, one that is set within today’s environment and society.

The very campus is broken down into three distinct schools – Applied Sciences, Design and Social Sciences. Each program requires two vertical buildings, to contain it. Each roughly contains five academic departments with four open spaces between of varying size depending upon the department. These created clusters are then broken down to their individual program requirements, and subsequent room arrangements. These simple rules provide for distinct schools that form a semiological campus. School sizes were determined through campus, and student body population research, in first phase.

What authors hopes is to change the current lateral thinking associated with campuses to one that is highly adaptable, networked and recognizable yet rich with semiology.
