The recent construction of the East Building and the renovation of the Campus Center redefined NJIT’s campus core. The impact of these buildings on campus encouraged the Institute to examine its open spaces and the role of the landscape in campus life. The need for a Landscape Master Plan was a result of this examination.
The New York City based landscape architecture firm Thomas Balsley Associates (TBA) was selected to create a Landscape Master Plan to inventory and analyze the existing landscape and develop new ideas for the future. Working closely with the Institute’s staff and with the assistance of Gwathmey Siegel, architects for the East Building and Campus Center, TBA’s Landscape Master Plan will provide a framework for future building and landscape development on campus.
