Topic: NC State University Master Plan
Summary: Centennial Campus is part of a larger effort by NC State to create neighborhoods that are diverse in character and are organized around attractive, lively open spaces. The proposed physical master plan contributes to a sense of place by building a common vision of Campus Neighborhoods and their connecting Paths. Centennial's master plan demonstrates a rich tapestry of foot paths, smart buildings and natural environment to foster NC State's Guiding Principles.
Primary Aspects of this plan includes;
- Human Scaled Neighborhoods and Paths
- Environmental Sustainability
- Pedestrian Oriented Campus
- Effective and Appropriate Vehicular Movement
- Other Issues
