Scholars' Green Park

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

The Scholars’ Green is a symbiosis of public park and academic common that provides rich outdoor amenity for students, faculty and the surrounding community. Ordered by a crystalline primary circulation lined with allees of columnar beech, the park’s facets contain: micro-forests; teaching ampitheatres; grass quadrangles; an outdoor café. The circulation system, a modern take on Harvard Yard, both pays homage to the collegial landscape while providing an ‘everybody-everywhere’ lattice of paths that seamlessly connects the park to its surroundings. The park is anchored at its core by a geometric light-filled pavilion in mirror stainless steel that serves as a new hub for both academic and neighbourhood events.
