university of north texas health science center

The Campus Master Plan’s focal points addressed two central issues. First, the relationship of the University with the neighboring communities, commercial areas, and the Cultural District. Second, the policy question of whether the University considers itself a ‘usually conceived’ Health Science Center or a collegially planned academic institution. The University focused on providing its faculty, students, visitors and the larger community a place that externally speaks to the principles of sharing, collaboration, and discovery. Our inverse planning approach, create a green canvas for the campus; not a blank slate but rather a landscape for the campus. The planning began as a ‘subtractive’ process to carefully carve away interactive ‘green’ space for building opportunities.
