In response to a land gift of 20 acres of Mississippi Riverfront property in downtown Moline, Western Illinois University Quad Cities relocated all campus facilities into a single, unified campus on the riverfront property. Working in collaboration with Holabird & Root, site developed a site plan that creates a formal campus presence, strong axes along and across the campus, efficient access and service, appropriate zoning of parking, and open spaces. The cohesive campus includes functional and organized circulation systems, and flexible, multipurpose exterior spaces that respond to the riverfront context and provide opportunities for gathering, activity, and respite.
