Located at the centre of Sheridan College’s new campus, the Scholars’ Green is a symbiosis of public park and academic common that provides rich outdoor amenity for students, faculty and the surrounding community. Ordered by a criss crossing circulation system, a modern take on Harvard Yard, it both pays homage to the collegial landscape while providing an ‘everybody-everywhere’ lattice of paths that seamlessly connect the park to its surrounds.

The historical centre of Bordeaux University sets a new beginning : the Opération Campus begins with urban design at its heart, where intermingling can take place. The initial meaning of “campus” can be retrieved through an intense central green space.
This series of courtyards becomes a network of interactive spaces, as well as a part of the city : a number of facilities animate the center of the square (museum, café , amphitheaters) and contribute to its urban value. The addition of planted elements lends a human scale to the existing hardscape by providing shade, delineating paths, and acting to filter air, sound, and light that enters the space. More info
