Sacramento State University Master Plan
Richard Thompson, FAIA, as a Principal at Assembledge+ served as a senior planning consultant to AC Martin Partners in developing this 20 year master plan for Sacramento State University.
The primary elements of the 2014 master plan focus on the phased replacement of aging academic buildings in the academic core, increasing on-campus student housing to reinforce a 24/7 campus environment and enhancing the existing “Tree Campus” with a new central open space that gracefully connects the north quad with the central Library quad and the Well quad to the south. A central feature of this open space system is a landscaped drainage swale that not only provides an aesthetic element running thru the heart of the campus but also a functional storm water management component of the overall campus sustainability strategy.
