University Circle Plaza

The design for University Circle Plaza improves an underused existing sidewalk plaza at Case Western University, to be a gateway to the University Circle District of Cleveland, Ohio, and an active social space for students, campus visitors, and patrons of the adjacent restaurants. The new scheme raises the plaza above the surrounding sidewalks to create an informal stage and extensive seating edges, framed by a linear light feature that meanders through the existing tree canopy.
