Cloud Gehshan Associates (Philadelphia) is working with Cornell University on a new wayfinding strategy for the 745-acre campus, the largest in the Ivy League.
The campus features that make it so picturesque--waterfalls, a lake, steep hills, and deep snow--also make for challenging and circuitous wayfinding. Adding to the complexity are four quadrangles, seven colleges, an expansive arboretum, a busy veterinary hospital, and a complicated parking system.
CGA is at work on the preliminary wayfinding plan and schematic design concepts, just as the university celebrates its 150th anniversary.
