In 2013 the Georgia Institute of Technology contracted us to design its Cherry Street Corridor Landscape Master Plan as a pivotal step in restoring the character of the university’s birthplace. Centrally located at the top of “Freshman Hill,” between the main library and the landmark Tech Tower, the corridor needed to express the university’s future-minded mission. The first step in restoring the corridor was revitalizing Harrison Square.
Our design is more than a respectful nod to Georgia Tech’s proud heritage. It integrates the variety of buildings, monuments, and gathering spaces into contemporary moments. Its gestures celebrate the promise of research and technology while speaking to the students of today.
It can accommodate large events, while a series of “outdoor rooms” and seating areas offers respite for students, faculty, and staff. The design accomplishes all of this through an elegant, site-responsive solution that welcomes everyone to participate in the campus culture.
