VIRGINIA TECH WAR MEMORIAL HONOR COURT, BLACKSBURG, VA
Conceptual design for renewal of Virginia Tech's historic Alumni Mall following its bifurcation by Torgerson Bridge completed 2000. The scheme envisions periodic closure of the space to vehicular traffic for conversion to a pedestrian-only, center-campus plaza. Softly- illuminated, flush-with-paving light bands inspired by Peter Walker and Partners IBM Makuhari Building, Chiba Prefecture, Japan. The scheme manifests Tech's dedication to innovation while respectful of historic tradition. Perspectives by Peter Giraudeau. Design by Bartenstein while senior landscape architect with Hill Studio.
