With its superblocks, elevated walkways and separate precincts for living and working, the Twin Cities Campus of the University of Minnesota has historically had a poor relationship with the cities that surround it and the Mississippi River that divides it. The Master Plan prepared by Urban Strategies reconnects the two campuses and weaves them into the existing urban fabric as it guides the University’s growth and renewal over a 25 year time frame. While it introduces a more urban structure, the plan also calls for a stronger definition of the campus environment, particularly its edges, open spaces and pathways.
