Anne Arundel Community College Open Space Renovation

Location: Arnold, Maryland
Type: College/University, Campus Open Space, Sustainable Design, Plaza, Concept Plan
Status: Concept completed

This project is to prepare a concept plan for the improvement and renovation of the open space in the north of the Truxal Library. The goal was to transform this underutilized, unappealing open “space” into a lively, usable, attractive “place”. The proposed design features include a staircase for congregation, an outdoor Study Plaza with trees, permeable paving and removable tables and chairs, a new plaza further north with a rain garden as a center piece and miscellaneous landscape improvements along the building edges.
