Mercer University Cruz Plaza

Mercer University Cruz Plaza

Mercer University wanted to redefine its central campus quad and green space as more inviting, inclusive and integrated. HGOR was tapped to create a comprehensive master open space plan to guide future exterior development. As the visual center of campus, the timeless, understated design emphasizes a sense of arrival, and provides a flexibility activity space for student life. Elements include fountains, brick walkways, gathering and seating spaces, significant landscaping improvements and a prominent water feature. In addition, a 2,200-pound bronze bear statue has been relocated, becoming a focal point of the Plaza’s design.
