Whether planning from scratch or updating an existing scheme, designing a master plan for a 21st century campus is complex. The process requires a balance between numerous objectives. The best solutions are achieved after attaining a comprehensive understanding of contextual, historical, and environmental conditions.
Master plans are essential to developing appropriate and long-term campus growth, including vehicular and pedestrian circulation, potential building and parking sites, and greenspaces to improve physical connections.
Lord, Aeck & Sargent’s philosophy recognizes the integral relationship between buildings and open spaces, and we understand an institution’s mission is to provide a comprehensive learning environment. Because a campus is inherently defined by its boundaries, our plans also acknowledge institutional surroundings and greater community.
We will work with you to ensure that your master plan promotes a clear sense of place, respects the history and diversity of your institution, and stimulates the academic and social growth of your institutional population.
