Harvard University: Blackstone

The strategic remodel of the Blackstone Power Plant transformed a neglected industrial site into a pioneering, environmentally responsible campus space. The LEED Platinum project marks a turning point for Harvard University, setting a precedent for the role landscape plays in campus planning and design. This alternative to a traditional campus quad employs recycled, excavated material to structure an urban stormwater remediation system. The project reinforces interactions between ecological performance and campus life. As a case study in sustainable development, environmental awareness, and ecological education, the project provides a working laboratory for the university’s future generations.
