Carnegie Mellon University Campus Master Plan

Carnegie Mellon University Campus Master Plan

|   Pittsburgh PA
Overview: Campus master plan to guide the university’s growth over time, with subsequent design of a new dormitory, commons, parking garage, performing arts center, athletic fields, and university center that includes a gymnasium, pool, and bookstore.

The campus plan was described by the jury that awarded it first prize as “a pattern of new buildings and outdoor spaces that will knit together with the old into an exciting new whole… The proposed design returns to an American tradition of campus planning that was began by Thomas Jefferson as the University of Virginia.” The design recommended the restoration of a natural hollow that divided the campus through the removal of several buildings that blocked it. The various components of the university center are organized around a quadrangle framed by colonnades. The quad, which is entered from Forbes Avenue, gives the campus a new and stronger identity as approached from the city.
