The French architectural partnership Leroy and Mondet was responsible for the university buildings, originally known as the Centre Universitaire du Sangkum Reastr Niyum that line blvd USSR to the west of ITC.The main buildings appear to float in mid-air, almost defying gravity by resting on slender supporting columns that allow the passage of air to circulate around the structures. Renovated recently, the university buildings form an impressive entrance to the city along the main boulevard from the Phnom Penh International Airport.The most interesting part of the building is a parabolic roof construction.
