The University of Delaware’s Laird Campus is a 16-acre residential precinct. In a phased implementation, the University removed outdated student housing, replacing it with new and reconfigured open space. The new campus landscapes are concentrated along a central spine connected to the buildings by plazas. Overlooks emphasize the connection to nature. The landscape palette of the central campus extends to this new development with brick walkways and open green spaces framed by rows of canopy trees.
