ROLE: Project Manager + Landscape Designer
WRT collaborated with TEN Arquitectos to win this international competition to create a visionary master plan for the Rutgers University College Avenue Campus.
The urban design increases the density of buildings and activity into a more traditional campus-like environment. The closing of College Avenue to vehicular traffic provides a strong central spine where a new walkway and allee carry students and faculty from one end of campus to the other. In addition, the creation of a pedestrian Mall and River Lawn park will reconnect Rutgers back to the Raritan River, anchored by a new iconic Arts and Sciences Tower that celebrates the spirit of higher education.
