Purdue University engaged Ayers Saint Gross to create a master plan that provides a 50-year vision that informs near-term decisions and actions. The plan creates a framework for open space, circulation, connectivity, renovations, and new construction for the West Lafayette campus. The plan aligns the physical campus with the mission and programmatic goals and initiatives of the university and is guided by six planning principles: strengthen identity, enhance connectivity, promote vibrancy, foster collaboration, nurture sustainability, and increase utilization and flexibility. As part of the comprehensive planning effort, the team conducted in-depth analysis focused on housing, space needs and space adequacy, athletics, and research. The final plan balances visionary goals with what can realistically be achieved, funded, and implemented.
The Giant Leaps Master Plan builds on Purdue’s 150-year history and looks to the future.
The Purdue University Giant Leaps Master Plan provides a framework for the physical campus to support Purdue Moves and the giant leaps the university will undertake in the next 50 years.
The plan focuses on connectivity, collaboration, vibrancy, sustainability, and flexibility.
