Utilizing the idea of “collage” as a guiding design principle, the plaza transforms an existing parking lot into a student gathering space at the heart of campus. The assemblage of paving, earthforms, walls and plantings blend the “natural” with the “man-made” in both organic and geometric patterns. A stylized rock ledge fountain at the juncture of existing wooded slopes and the plaza grows in height and water intensity leading into a restful garden space where students are able to escape the rigors of their demanding performance schedules.
