Georgia Institute of Technology
Georgia Institute of Technology (GIT) is a well-established institute of higher learning in Atlanta, Georgia. With a desire to define, enhance, and understand the opportunities and constraints of the primary vehicular entrances to the campus, GIT engaged landscape architecture firm LEUNG planning+design as part of a multidisciplinary team of consultants. The project was conducted in two phases and included the design and placement of monument signage at each of the five primary entrances.
The initial step was the beginning of a platce-making process. The concept design was prepared as part of developing a thorough understanding of Georgia Tech's development goals and objectives, administrative, and economic realities.
A reconnaissance and inventory of the sites and adjacent areas was developed to understand each area's opportunities and constraints, including consideration of material, theme, branding, and examples of gateway design at peer institutions as well as vandalism concerns. The analysis was conducted to include a detailed review of existing conditions of each site, and document the conditions of the existing signs, orientation, and visibility from roadways and sidewalks, landscape, and lighting conditions.
