IHA combines educations such as electronics, information and communication technology as well as health technology and is a state-of-the-art institution housing 3.000 students, scientists, researchers, etc. The school consists of three buildings – one newly built and two renovated buildings – named after famous engineers: Edison, Kahn and Shannon.

The new building Edison stands out with its solid base of grey tiles, the white and polished façade of the inserted building case and the eye-catching gable, where vertical fins of yellow glass decorate the windows. The fins are both functional and a beautiful drapery; they work as a sun screen and give the building a noticeable identity. In the evening, the yellow glass comes alive: interactive LED light not only light up the fins, but make them vary in color according to how many students are active inside the house.
