“Campus Planning and Design are integral tools to create a cohesive infrastructure system that incorporates all buildings and open spaces as a whole system, linking each of the buildings together by an overall design. The purpose of a campus is to bring together diverse people and their ideas in an environment that creates potential for intellectual and social exchange. While the physical character and quality of a campus are defined by both its buildings and its open space, it is the open space which has the greatest potential for unifying and balancing the shared space of the campus. It can promote the sense of community derived from an actively-shared space and provide for the enriching experiences of both planned and chance encounters. Comprised of streets, walkways, green spaces, courtyards, plazas, and gardens, open space has the potential to unite the diverse elements of the campus in a coherent way.
I will be sharing my project, Cleveland Clinic Heart Center, from my time working with Peter Walker. The Cleveland Clinic Heart Center and Allee was the first project to be built as the part of the Cleveland Clinic’s Masterplan.”
