Architectural , Landscape, and Exterior Sign Design Guidelines

  • Architectural Design Guidelines: Developed by Facilities Management to provide guidelines for new construction related to height, scale, proportions and materials. The guidelines are not intended to create uniformity, but are intended to develop a sense of visual unity and consistency in the environment. (pdf can be downloaded here).
  • Landscape Guidelines Developed by our University Landscape Architect. These guidelines are intended to be a resource for creating and maintaining a campus landscape with a certain level of consistency that exists across various precincts with specific contextual requirements.
  • Exterior Sign Standards - Developed for the Duke University Landscape Architect, these guideines provide drawings, elevations, and layouts required for Duke University exterior signs.
