Birmingham Southern College

Birmingham-Southern College is a nationally ranked private, liberal arts college of 1,500 students. The college has a strong reputation as a leading academic and arts institution. The campus was in need of a master plan to coalesce the collection of varying building and landscape styles with projected housing, academic and administrative building and open space needs. Nimrod Long and Associates was chosen to analyze the functions and aesthetics of the campus and develop a new master plan for its 188 acre site.

The master plan gives the campus back to the pedestrian. The heavily traveled road dividing the academic quadrangle from the dormitory quadrangle has been removed. New pedestrian systems are accessible and create dramatic views of the hilly campus. New building sites have been chosen to reinforce axial views and strengthen existing quadrangles. Parking has been relocated outside of the campus core. Roads loop around, rather than through the main campus. The master plan creates outdoor rooms that have enlivened the campus.
