Landscape Master Plan

A landscape...unique to Georgia Tech - a Performance Landscape - joining technology and ecology to create great sense of place...integrates landform, hydrology, soils, and biological communities...trees shape microclimate and engage the hydrologic cycle, where soils drink in stormwater instead of discharging it into sewers, where biomass sequesters carbon, improves air quality and increases biodiversity. The landscape is also a cultural entity that integrates open space, buildings, circulation and human behavior and experience.
