University of Connecticut – Gateway at Fine Arts

As part of a strategic public/private partnership among the town of Storrs, the adjacent Storrs Center Development, and the university, UCONN saw a need for a new southern Gateway at this newly activated intersection, connecting students, faculty, residents, and visitors in a pedestrian-oriented downtown. Langan’s team of landscape architects and site/civil engineers worked closely with university landscape architects to design a new streetscape for UCONN’s Fine Arts Campus. The site serves as a pedestrian connection between the Nafe Katter Theatre, home to the Connecticut Repertory Theatre, the Von der Mehden Recital Hall, and the School of Fine Arts.
