  • Campus Design Principles, August 2010
    Sasaki Associates (Virginia Tech, 2010-08)
    The primary goal of the university's Campus Design Principles is to reaffirm the university's design approach to the contemporary interpretation of revival Collegiate Gothic campus architecture, including massing, scale, groupings, arrangements, design features, colors, textures, and other contextual design opportunities. Equally important to the "sense of place" at Virginia Tech is the character of the open spaces, passages, and outdoor "rooms" which form such a memorable campus landscape. It is the careful integration of buildings and open space which ultimately define the physical presence of a campus. The Campus Design Principles communicate our commitment to the stewardship of these finite resources and assure that the balance between built and natural form is sensitively developed over time in a way which respects the architectural language and landscape features of campus. To do this effectively, the principles outline the history of the Virginia Tech campus, the intricacies of its architectural detailing, the massing of its buildings and structures, and the special characteristics of landscape features, trees, and plant materials – those elements which are combined to form the physical and spatial characteristics of buildings and places. The intent is to have these design principles used as a companion to the university's Campus Master Plan to offer the most sensitive and responsible design solutions for the growth and regeneration of the campus.

  • Virginia Tech Bike Parking Plan, Spring 2014
    (Virginia Tech, 2014-01)
    One of the most common obstacles for cyclists is the lack of bicycle parking at their destination. Adequate bicycle parking encourages people to ride, presents a more orderly appearance for buildings, prevents damage to trees and street furniture, and keeps bicycles from falling over and blocking the sidewalk. Most importantly, bicycle parking helps legitimize cycling as a viable transportation mode by providing parking opportunities equal to motorized modes. Therefore, it is the university’s ultimate desire to utilize the information in the Bicycle Parking Master Plan to determine size and location of additional bicycle parking areas to meet both short-term and long-term parking needs of campus cyclists.

  • Campus Master Plan Update 2006
    (Virginia Tech, 2006)
    The 2006 Master Plan continues patterns of infill to achieve ideal densities in the core district. This plan implements western expansion of the campus by proposing the Life Science District in the ten-year horizon, and preserves the golf course as a future district and land bank. The master plan also codifies and designates the environmental and cultural greenway as a significant reservation of lands, waterways, tree stands, and cultural landmarks for future generations and “best management practices” of sustainable land use. Finally, this plan allows for the growth of the airport, CRC, the core campus, and fulfills objectives of the master plan for Blacksburg and, most importantly, aligns with and helps to implement Virginia Tech’s strategic vision.
