I think it works. The Bangkok University Landmark Complex deisnged by Architects 49, is built on concepts of reorganizing the frontal area of the campus and of creating and impressive, landmark approach to the university. It is designed with contemporary forms- yes, you can see Daniel Leibeskind in it if you chose to- and the symbol of the university, a diamond, in mind.
Built with existing university traffic in mind, the complex creates two new gates to increase flow efficiency. Within, there are entrance facilities as well as additional space for the School of Business Management. These spaces include offices, classrooms, seminar rooms and lecture halls. The three iconic forms are oriented around a pond which serves as a reflecting surface, a natural barrier, and a reservoir for the university.
