To provide a pedestrian connection to two of the University’s educational buildings. Facilitate charrette with stakeholders and students. Incorporate the student’s design concepts for the Solar walk while reducing conflicts with existing site conditions.

Sustainable solutions include 100% native plant materials, multiple rain gardens, permeable pavements, bioswale, solar volatic panels and rainwater collection from trellis roofs.
