SMU Centennial Quadrangle

An ambitious plan to grow and expand SMU is organized by a master plan prepared by Kevin Sloan Studio. The master plan transforms some itinerant apartments into a new quadrangle, student concourse and a program for new buildings that include the Blanton Student Center, Collins School for Business and the Caruth Engineering Building at the Bobby Lyle School of Engineering. Student and vehicular circulation is handled as interlaced systems where pavements do double service and emergency vehicle access is accommodated but visually eliminated through structured lawn technologies.
