OSU Formal Gardens

OSU Formal Gardens
 Alaback Design worked closely with Oklahoma State University to design a comprehensive renovation of the iconic Formal Gardens. Located in the heart of the campus, this landmark space is a favorite place for activities, photographs, and enjoying beautiful landscaping.

The proposed plan achieves the objective of aligning the Formal Gardens with the center door of the Edmon Low Library. The proposed refinements to the Formal Gardens’ geometry and layout are intended to achieve more visual cohesiveness and balance.

Another important element for the new Formal Gardens will be an integration of new lighting. As shown on the site plan, new campus standard pedestrian lights are proposed on the North/ South walks that are on the East/ West end of the gardens.
