Total Square Footage
Located on 84 acres donated by the Government of Pakistan, the Aga Khan University was conceived in 1970 to improve healthcare delivery and medical education throughout Pakistan. While the complex incorporates state-of-the-art educational and medical technologies, it also demonstrates that a modern architectural solution should preserve the spirit of its culture.
The initial campus, an integrated complex of buildings and landscaped courtyards completed in 1985, provided approximately one million square feet of space for hospital, academic and housing functions. Payette has designed numerous additions and expansions during the past 25 years since the campus opened. Today, this campus is the hub of an integrated health delivery network that delivers care to one million patients annually in Pakistan and the surrounding region.
