CAMPUS PLANNING: University of Wisconsin – Madison

Here is another campus overview that I recently received from the ASLA Campus Planning and Design Professional Practice Network.  This is a virtual trip to the upper Midwest and a great campus: University of Wisconsin – Madison.  Mark Hough and Gary Brown created this profile for the PPN.  Being a southerner, I was always wondered if the snow actually melted in Wisconsin.  Definitely looks impressive when it does melt.  Lots of green and even a lake for the campus to front upon.

“Attached is the Campus profile for University of Wisconsin-Madison. I have not been there yet but it looks like a beautiful campus in an incredible setting and well worth a visit. Thanks to Gary Brown for his help with the photos.

The pdf photos just tell a fraction of the story so I have added links to some websites that present more of the campus and the beautiful landscape associated with it:

  1. That does look like a really nice campus. Thanks for sharing. I usually like to take a walk through campuses in cities that I visit. It is fun to see landscape architect’s work on a grand scale.

  2. Lake Mendota is gorgeous, and a big pull for students choosing this campus. It has reciprocity with the state of Minnesota, making it great for kids in both states. It is one of the “big 10” and 2 of my sisters and a niece have been fortunate enough to graduate from there. It’s pretty hot and humid though!
