West Campus Plaza at Duke University
by Mark Hough, ASLA

The West Campus Plaza at Duke University is an above grade plaza in the center of campus that replaced a busy, yet nondescript, 12 foot wide concrete bridge that connected the West Quad with the Bryan University Center. The $10 million project, designed by Hargreaves Associates, turned what had previously been primarily a circulation route into an vibrant and popular campus open space that is the site of large and small events, performances, food service and informal gathering.
