The following is an excerpt from the Landscape Architectural Design Standards
2014 page 14 which refers to sustainability goal in landscape management.
LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN STANDARDS
CREATING THE DESIGN STANDARDS
Comprehensive site analysis, meetings with University officials, and elements of the 2011 UTEP Campus Master Plan informed the designs for the Campus Transformation Project, which serves as the foundation for the framework for development established by these Landscape Architectural Design Standards. The goals outlined in this section will guide current and future development toward socially and ecologically responsible
design to better meet the needs of the UTEP community and celebrate the richness of the Chihuahuan Desert in which it resides. Aerial perspective of Centennial Plaza Conceptual Design)
DESIGN STANDARD GOALS
The Landscape Architectural Design Guidelines seek to achieve four goals:
1. Establish a strong campus identity
2. Foster human comfort on campus
3. Exemplify ecological urbanism
4. Develop culture of sustainability
These goals aim to stimulate learning and help realize the vision of UTEP sustainable, place-inspired world class campus. These Landscape Architectural Design Standards have been developed to work in concert with the principles of the Sustainable Sites Initiative (see appendix).
