Specifications include, but are not limited to:The Academical Village, Thomas Jeffersons innovative design for an integrated complex of buildings and landscape, serves as the quintessential model for the development of the Grounds of the University. While this model requires modification to adapt to modern realities such as modes of transportation, utility infrastructure and new approaches to pedagogy and learning, the Academical Village exemplifies the idea of meaningful outdoor spaces in support of study and socialization, enjoyable and functional connections and the emphasis of landscape and nature as an essential and substantial part of a university campus.The 1998 Landscape Master Plan was an innovative planning initiative that ushered in a new way of thinking about campus planning. Riparian corridors were recommended as opportunities to unite the Universitys Grounds and provide an environmentally responsible approach to stormwater management, while also providing outdoor space amenities for the University community. A pedestrian and bike corridor, the Groundswalk, aligned along natural ridges and high points, linked disparate segments of Grounds then segmented by vehicular routes. Recommendations were made to better accommodate pedestrians and bikes along major streets and entrance corridors.Many of the recommendations from this planning effort have been accomplished, such as daylighting Meadow Creek at the Dell site and the pedestrian and bike trail over Emmet Street (The Goodwin Bridge). Projects utilizing the principles set forth in the 1998 Landscape Master Plan have been implemented across Grounds, such as at the John Paul Jones Arena with its innovative stormwater management and at the South Lawn academic precinct, which also includes innovative stormwater management, but also interpretation of a historical site and important pedestrian connections. Others have been advanced in design, such as pedestrian and bike improvements for McCormick Road, or prioritized in future planning efforts such as pedestrian accommodation and stormwater improvements along Massie Road. However, the Universitys Grounds, through the development of a Landscape Framework Plan, must continue to improve and adapt to advances in technology, pedagogy and social trends. It must enhance and expand meaningful outdoor spaces that support socialization and learning and provide flexibility of use. It must provide functional and dynamic corridors and connective spaces to provide safe and enjoyable connections for pedestrians and cyclists. It must continue to promote environmental stewardship by incorporating green infrastructure and enhancing habitat and environmental services. It must preserve and protect historic and cultural resources. It must uphold the principles of the academic Cornerstone Plan ( Working with the Universitys Public Art Committee,
