NC A&T University
NC A&T University wanted to have an iconic landmark on the previously unused Bluford traffic circle that would demarcate the central location on campus with a lasting architectural structure. Surface 678 designed the hardscape surrounding the bell tower, which includes sidewalks, landscape, and pedestrian seating. This design showcases a simple planting palette that provides year-round interest. This planting palette was chosen to accentuate the landmark without distracting from the bell tower as the main focal point.
