The Proposed Land Use Plan has been developed based upon the planned consolidation of program types (Housing and Academics specifically).
The identity of the academic land use zone is strengthened by locating general academic space in the center of campus and the placement of specific program areas toward ends of the Pedestrian Spine. The building use plan should be consistent with this concept, creating academic village type settings at each end of the spine.
Student support areas such as the Library and the College Union are comfortably integrated within the academic zone. In the housing areas, there needs to be a balance between new learning living concepts and providing an environment indicative of a “home”.
The Proposed Land Use Plan improves program access for patrons and visitors by relocating many services to the perimeter of campus near vehicular circulation routes.
External vistas provide a sense of place that continually reminds everyone of the campus place within the community and the region. These vistas must be maintained.
Internal vistas and focal points provide a sense of place as to the location of a specific area on campus. Careful consideration of these internal vistas while increasing building densities within the academic core should enhance this sense of place.
