The Institute of Diplomatic Studies is closely linked to the adjacent iconic building of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. In the new building, the Ministry will handle visa applications, diplomatic affairs, and the training of new diplomats, all under one roof. On the many indoor terraces, which extend across the full length of the building, students and employees can meet across the organization. Like its neighbor, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Institute of Diplomatic Studies is surfaced with local limestone. The patterns on the spectacular facade let daylight flow into the building without allowing the sun to heat up the interior oasis.
