Master Plan for the University of Maryland Baltimore County Campus

Title

Master Plan for the University of Maryland Baltimore County Campus

Description

Once UMBC was open and operating, the firms of RTKL, Inc. (Architects and Planners), Rummel, Klepper, and Kahl (Site Engineers), and Egli and Gompf, Inc. (Mechanical and Electrical engineers) were asked to create a Master Plan for use as a record of the campus development and as a tool for future expansion of the new campus. The resulting Master Plan made many cogent observations that have shaped the development even up to the present. For example, the authors observed that a grid of 250 foot squares would constitute the basic building unit of the campus and that the central axis established by the grid would be reinforced by location of a formal campus entry and a dominant campus building, the library.�
