Master Plan Enhancement
California Institute of Technology
The purpose of the Master Plan Enhancement Project was to better define the intent of Caltech's existing master plan in placing buildings, gateways, vistas and other architectural features in and around the campus.
ACMP developed a 3-D computer model for the northern portion of the Caltech campus and prepared a series of alternative concept plans and 3-D computer massing models to illustrate a variety of building locations and heights, general architectural character, views and vistas, and pedestrian and automobile circulation.
Specific studies included:
• studies for a proposed North Campus Gateway Plaza, including development of prototypical building
footprints for office/administration, laboratory, museum/public relations outreach and underground
• studies for a proposed Biological Sciences Building;
• assessment of a proposed Fire Station site for radius of service, campus access, noise impact,
traffic impact and visibility and appropriateness.
