Princess Noura University

Princess Noura bint Abdulrahman University (PNU) is the largest women-only university in the world. It is composed of 32 campuses across the Riyadh region. In 2011 a new campus was built that can accommodate 40,000 students and 12,000 employees. Helioscreen delivered over 80.000sqm of Panama fabric for the window covering.

The entire campus is LEED-certified, and includes one of the world's largest thermal solar power plants, a solid waste station and a wastewater and water re-use treatment plant.

The university has its own website containing some more beautiful pictures of the architecture.
