NC A&T Classroom Building

Greensboro, North Carolina

The site design concept for the new 88,000 square foot academic building at North Carolina A&T State University focuses on the stratification forms indicative of agricultural practices. These significant patterns are translated and applied to the landscape design, creating an urban environment that allows for dynamic movement throughout the site. Both landscape and hardscape patterns recall worked fields while Gingko trees represent the edge of a forest clearing and appear from the seating walls continuing into the plaza. Derived from site context and the modern architecture of the building, sequenced plaza areas and seating strips provide meeting points, resting places, and directionality for students.
