TCU Mary Wright Admissions Center

A TCU First Impression

This project involved site and landscape architectural design for this 13,000 s.f. building that will bring together under one roof all of the admissions functions of Texas Christian University. Recognizing that this will be one of the first buildings on the TCU campus that will be seen by prospective students and their parents, this building and the related landscape is designed to convey images of quality, stability, and excitement. A small water feature is designed into the north front main entrance to the facility, and broad pedestrian walks facilitate access to adjacent parts of the campus. The south facade of the building has been carefully designed to relate to the City of Fort Worth streetscape programs for retail areas to the east of the site. Several large outdoor gathering areas have been provided for social functions and large student tour groups.
