UAF Campus Wide Core Plan
|Client:||University of Alaska Fairbanks|
The University of Alaska Fairbanks’ Wood Center building functions as one of the major hubs of activity on campus. It is located within what is known as the ‘Campus Core’ and includes iconic areas like Cornerstone Plaza, Constitution Plaza, as well as the Library and Fine Arts buildings. The recent renovation and expansion of the Wood Center modified and impacted the surrounding campus plazas and changed both vehicular and non-motorized circulation in the area. UAF hired Corvus Design and BDS Architects to evaluate how vehicles and pedestrians are currently accessing the Campus Core and propose alternative design solutions for problem areas. With this effort, Corvus Design was also asked to provide a schematic design set for the new Wood Center vehicular drop off area that is proposed to be installed in summer 2014 with the remainder of the renovation effort.
