Wake Technical Community College
Surface 678 designed the perimeter landscape and plaza of this Wake Technical Community College Parking Deck located on the Northern Wake Campus. Parking Deck 2 is 260,000 SF with 782 spaces to provide more student parking and densify the campus from the original surface parking. The plaza on the east side of the deck is flexible open space while providing fire truck access. The simplicity of the plaza trees and paving pairs with the stark yet intricate parking deck skin pattern. Wet pond stormwater management plantings and plaza trees extend the natural character of the forest into the site, softening the transition to the stream buffer bridge crossing into main campus.
