Fayetteville State University
The 1.5 acres that is Cook Quad today was once part of a larger open space formed by the original group of historic buildings on campus. As the campus has been developed that space has been reduced, used as a temporary construction staging and parking space and mobile classrooms have been located in the quad, damaging the Quad as a result. Surface 678 was hired to restore this previously symbolic open space back to a prominent campus setting. The design renovates the open space, improves entrances to buildings on the Quad and has as a focal point, Cook Hall, one of the more architecturally-prominent buildings on campus.
