UNIVERSITY OF CINCINNATI - CAMPUS GREEN

CINCINNATI, OHIO

 
 
 
 
 
Located adjacent to Sigma Sigma Commons, Campus Green transforms an asphalt parking lot into ample 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 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 Bookstore, the Alumni and Faculty Center, and housing. As such, the Green is the 'social center' of campus.
