Landscape Character as a Wayfinding Device

The University of Wisconsin–Green Bay is fortunate to have such a valuable resource as the Cofrin Arboretum within its boundaries. This landscape on the perimeter of campus, with sweeping openings of native grasses, tall stands of oak and birch, and sentinel hawthorns dotting the horizon, gives the area a unique, natural character.

Recommendations:

Implementation:

Gateway Trail

Gateway Trail

Naturalized plantings and gravel paths define the periphery of campus and sweep in to the center of campus.

Rooftop Terrace

Rooftop Terrace

The rooftop terrace of the Student Services building is in contrast to the naturalized plantings found throughout campus. These core areas, designed and landscaped in a more urban fashion, help visitors discern spaces and transi-g tions within campus, and are an important aid in wayf nding and navigation.
