Building upon the master plan by Hargreaves Associates for the University of Cincinnati, Campus Green transforms an asphalt parking lot into open lawns, gardens and an arboretum. The circulation system that winds through the space, a series of intertwined braided paths, refers symbolically to the course of a stream that formerly ran through the site and incorporates storm water collection runnels and a fountain feature. Additional paths intersect the braided system and connect destination points that surround the Green. The Green serves as the common open space for a mix of uses: the College of Business, the Campus Recreation Center by Morphosis, the Bookstore, the Alumni and Faculty Center, and housing. As such, the Green is the “social center” of campus.
