The winning design for the Obafemi Awolowo University Senate building celebrates the campus and Ile-Ife itself, taking inspiration from architect Arieh Sharon’s central campus design. The building incorporates climate responsiveness, with a central atrium and courtyards for cross ventilation, double roofs for thermal protection, and perforated balusters for sunscreens.

The design also includes functional art elements such as an entrance trellis reminiscent of the beaded veil of the Oòni of Ife, gardens, water features, a roof garden, and a park at the rear of the building.
