Long-term thinking and project implementation are the foundations of campus planning. Princeton is balancing future focus (planning for 200 years) with the pressing need to implement initial phases quickly and efficiently. South of its historic campus, Princeton is expanding into land that has been preserved for the past century to build its Lake Campus, a new center for research, discovery, recreation, and student life. Come learn how new methods of planning, design, and implementation can deliver holistic campuses by combining vertical projects with site development in a single, integrated process.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Strategically build programs that mix uses, users, and unique amenities to catalyze campus life and create community, especially in areas separated from the center of campus.
  2. Learn from the land and its history to act as a steward of the pastoral landscapes that underly your campus.
  3. Explain how to leverage the three-dimensional nature of project sites to fully utilize all layers of limited space in service of campus needs, reserving as much land as possible for the future and curating an ethos of sustainability.
  4. Explain how to bring an ambitious master plan to fruition by merging all planning types into parallel and connected workflows, organizing design teams in a non-traditional way to deliver integration and efficiency.
