Coppin State University’s Campus Square is a green magnet at the heart of the campus. A variety of landscape elements located around a central lawn create multiple spaces for numerous uses. Events, classes and casual recreation occur simultaneously in this un-programmed landscape. The main objective of the Campus Square redesign was to provide a central gathering space which has a variety of uses. Landscape zones were established which loosely provide a framework for these uses. A strong diagonal path cuts through the lawn and is a counterpoint to the orthogonal design of the rectangular lawn. Seatwalls skip across the space providing seating at the edge of the fountain.
