1908 Plan Inspires New Vision For Univ. Campus

A nearly century old plan with ample open space and clusters of academic buildings enlightens the campus plan for a new century.

Inspired by the unrealized 1908 plan for the University of Wisconsin, the planning firm Ayers/Saint/Gross is creating campus plan for the 21st century. Springboarding from a plan developed during the City Beautiful movement. ASG is expanding and redefining the best elements of university campuses. The new plan will provide an aesthetic framework emphasising architectural interplay and open spaces whithin which traditional or contemporary structures may be developed.
