West Texas A&M University Master Plan
With some incredible historic assets in the campus core and several large projects set to expand the campus, our master plan for West Texas A&M University brings these elements together through strategic placemaking and highlights the unique identity of the university and the Texas Panhandle.
Our team and the West Texas A&M leadership focused on stitching together key areas of the core campus with beautifully designed open spaces and pedestrian plazas. Our vision creates a new campus seam between the historic core to the south and a quickly expanding sports and agricultural sciences complex to the north. The final project includes a long-range campus capacity plan, a best-in-class sustainability vision plan, and a prioritized 10-year plan for building, landscape, and infrastructure improvements.
Our master plan had the unique opportunity to dovetail with the West Texas A&M generational strategic plan known as WT 125, through which the university was re-imagining itself on its 125th anniversary. Seeking to double down on serving the students of the panhandle and advancing as a regional research university in a rural part of the country, our vision enhances its unique strengths and regional identity.
