The Southwest Concourse Replacement is a comprehensive revitalization of a five acre pedestrian core within a 5,000 student high-rise residential complex. A human scale pedestrian corridor was developed with of a series of student friendly spaces. Sustainability and environmental education themes are integrated throughout the Concourse: salvaged granite lines the series of linear bioswales and generous ipe decks span areas of native planting which infiltrate storm runoff on site. The project aims to redefine a new model of sustainable development for the University’s flagship campus.
