OLIN’s design for the Duke Medical Quadrangle and Esplanade establishes an open space which demonstrates a commitment to environmental sustainability. New buildings feature green roofs, and the landscape utilizes drought-tolerant, native and adapted plants. This minimizes irrigation needs, improves habitat for wildlife, and provides seasonal interest for patients, employees and visitors. Biofiltration, rainwater harvesting, and a commitment to pedestrian circulation links the site to the larger campus.
