UAPB Quadrangle Design
Crafton Tull provided landscape and irrigation design, site lighting layout, consultation on hardscape design, and signage design for the Quadrangle at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff. The challenges of the Quadrangle design included how to accommodate student foot traffic while preserving the 100-year old oak trees that were the heart of the campus. The addition of a circular walk around the clock tower plaza provided paved access and did not require invasive construction, which could have damaged the root systems of the mature trees. Brick paths on sand were used as diagonal paving solutions under the large oaks. Ornamental lighting accentuates the clock tower and provides illumination for student safety at night.
