The Master Plan of Namal Knowledge City

When Mr. Imran Khan laid eyes on the wilderness beside Namal Lake, he imagined a knowledge city inspired by his alma mater, Oxford University. He envisioned a center of knowledge to rival the best institutions in the world that would mold the youth of Pakistan into leaders of tomorrow. Master planner and architect, Tony Ashai is bringing that vision to life with special emphasis on people, planet and prosperity.
