OLIN worked with Temple University to create a development plan for the Main Campus of 30,000 students. The plan guides the University as it evolves and re-imagines the campus and the role of a top tier research university within North Philadelphia’s urban landscape. A central goal of the plan is to enhance the sense of campus community for all students, faculty, and staff by increasing the number of student residents and providing a wide variety of campus social spaces and amenities. The 20/20 Development Plan provided recommendations for long-term and short-term building and landscape projects, established campus design guidelines, analyzed massing and development pro-forma, and created material palettes for elements within the Main Campus. The plan is based around an armature of public open spaces and architecture, and creates a cohesive fabric of land uses that support the University's academic mission and promotes engagement with the surrounding communities.
