The College of Theology of the University of Baghdad by Mohamed Makiya in 1966-1968. It was built using reenforced concrete clad with brick facing. The offices, classrooms, library, and lecture halls are focused on courtyard spaces to adapt to the climate as well as the social patterns that have changed the architectural norms of the region. The structure uses pointed arabesque arches, concrete mashrabiyya, and air-channeling corridors to both naturally ventilate the building and stand out as explicit examples of Middle Eastern modernism. A small mosque attached to the college was planned but sadly never built.
