ENV Neutra Plaza
Landscape architecture students at the College of Environmental Design (ENV) have embarked on an ambitious project to redesign one of our beloved public spaces – the Neutra Plaza. Located in front of Building 7, this courtyard-style area is named after Richard Neutra, an influential pioneer of modernist architecture and a former lecturer at the college.
Lecturer Keiji Uesugi’s class is harnessing the power of partnerships between higher education and the college’s dynamic coalition of supporters to transform a concrete landscape into a more verdant placemaking space on campus. Work has been underway since the Fall 2019, as students create and implement a community-approved design that promotes native plant diversity, increases tree canopy and provides more public seating.
But they cannot do it alone. Your professional expertise and funding support will go a long way in making this transformation a reality. For as low as $250, donors – individuals and firms – will be honored for their stewardship in engraved paving stones that will adorn the new Neutra Plaza. The contributions are fully tax-deductible.
When you make your gift, you will be prompted to tell us what name you want engraved on your concrete paver!

*Note: These pavers will be showcased in the Neutra Plaza on campus, so all engravings must be school appropriate like your name, your company, your graduation year, or the name of a group you are a part of! All engraving submissions will pend approval by the ENV College.
