About the Project:

The goal of this project was to create a framework for campus wide site improvements and direction for future projects. What began as an inventory and analysis of existing conditions, evolved into a creative endeavor where the landscape was the driving force. Dividing the 97 acre campus into six “Zones of Experience”, based on relationships between site, environment, building use and student activities, provided meaningful structure for future growth and organization. This formed the basis for our new and original master plan for St John’s University.
