The central goal of this project was to arrive at a conceptual site plan for a new King Khalid University campus that is to be located in the vicinity of the city of Abha, which is located in Saudi Arabia's Asir province.

There had already been an international design competition for the campus' plan and architecture, sponsored by the Prince Abdullah Research and Consulting Institute of King Saud University, for which Professor El-Shakhs was a member of the jury. The goal of this studio was to arrive at a plan that would be comparable to other competition entries (without addressing architecture in a formal way) as well as to arrive at some unique ideas that might be incorporated into the final campus design.

At a minimum, the project was required to include a master plan for the site and initial vision for the design of the campus. In addition, the final plan was required to include conceptual planning for the College of Medicine, Main Administration Building, Main Library and the College of Arabic language and Social and Administrative Science.
