UAPB Quadrangle Design

Crafton Tull provided landscape and irrigation design, site lighting layout, consultation on hardscape design, and signage design for the Quadrangle at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff. The challenges of the Quadrangle design included how to accommodate student foot traffic across the space while preserving the 100-year old oak trees that were the heart of the campus. This led to creative solutions for both. The addition of a circular walk around the clock tower plaza provided paved access without invasive construction to the root systems of the mature trees. Brick paths on sand were used as diagonal paving solutions under the large oaks. Ornamental lighting was designed to accentuate the clock tower as well as provide illumination for student safety at night.
