Bandung Institute of Technology (Institut Teknologi Bandung or ITB) is one of Indonesia's top notch higher education institutions and the pride of Bandung. It is one of Indonesia's oldest colleges (established in 1920 under the name Technische Hooge School de Bandung) and one of five Indonesian higher education institutions that has made it to world's top 500 colleges (ranked 258).
Pictured above is the east wing of ITB's Campus Center. According to its website, the building was designed by Baskoro Tedjo, was dedicated in 2005, and is used mainly for seminars, discussions, and exhebitions. The west wing - opposite this building - meanwhile, houses the student center where different students' curricular and extracurricular organizations have their offices. Bridging these two wings is a lower ground circular glass building - underneath the foreground lawn in the picture - where the college's history, achievements, and artifacts are displayed.
