University of Florida Landscape Master Plan

Gainesville, FL

Our team worked with the University of Florida to provide a landscape master plan for its expansive 2,000 acre campus.

In addition to providing an overall plan, guidelines, and standards for the campus landscape, we developed conceptual designs for selected areas of the campus. The thirteen areas selected jointly by the University and our design team were chosen for their significance to the campus and for the applicability of their design solution to other campus areas. We developed the conceptual designs and the overall master plan with the University’s goal of Preeminence in mind. Established by its recently completed Strategic Development Plan, UF’s goal of Preeminence is reflected in our proposed transformation of the historic heart of the campus into a more walkable and welcoming environment for the University and the greater community.

To that end, we are exploring the conversion of roadways to shared paths, the interconnection of discontinuous open spaces and plazas, the addition of new gathering spaces, and the enhancement of the areas immediately surrounding UF’s recently renovated Plaza of the Americas, expanding the impact of its high-quality and historic landscape.
