Memorable Places

One of the guiding principles for planning on Duke's campus states that:

Duke is A COLLECTION OF MEMORABLE PLACES:

Direct development toward the creation of human-scale open spaces with distinct character;

  • by ensuring that all buildings be viewed as part of their context, not in isolation;
  • by seizing opportunities where development can improve the quality of existing areas; and
  • by relating building entries to streets, plazas, and other buildings, not to parking areas

This basic principle has driven the planning and design of many campus buildings and open spaces, and is utilized in all projects, large and small. They helped guide the design of these important projects:
