Dillard University Campus Landscape Master Plan: New Orleans, LA

Client: Dillard University

Summary: A campus-wide Landscape Master Plan is being designed to link and integrate elements of the campus. With vehicles permitted only on a permitted loop road and an emphasis on bicycle transportation, new tree-shaded pathways for pedestrians and bicycles, plaza areas, and bike parking are being designed. The Dillard University campus plan includes an existing prominent north-south corridor, known as the Avenue of the Oaks. With major new college buildings being developed on the east side of the campus, a new East-West pedestrian corridor is being designed as a Legacy Walk that commemorates outstanding African-Americans in our history. The concept draws from Dillard’s Heritage, including historically significant moments and people that helped shape the Dillard University that exists today. All new campus buildings and site improvements are seeking LEED Silver certification.
