Site Plan

The Benenson Plaza Project is the third phase of a long term Middle Campus unification project that will eventually join the quads between Newcomb Hall and McAlister Auditorium, transforming the green expanse into a beautiful and vibrant pedestrian environment with limited traffic in the areas flanking the green. The first two phases of the Newcomb McAlister Unified Green Master Plan have already been implemented through the creation of the pedestrian way McAlister Place (2010) and the Gorson Gathering Gardens as perimeter enhancements to the LBC Quad (2011).

Work for the Benenson Plaza project centered in the area of Newcomb Circle immediately in front of Newcomb Hall. The transformation of this area included the creation of an open pedestrian plaza that enhances pedestrian flow from Newcomb Hall and the surrounding areas to the quad and around Newcomb Circle. The design of the plaza also provides a defining edge for the unified green.

The plaza includes both formal and informal seating in shaded areas and around planted features. Students are able to enjoy these improvements for relaxation, impromptu gathering or studying in the mild New Orleans climate. The project also included improvements to the lighting surrounding Newcomb Quad as well as gathering areas at quad level. The Benenson Plaza supports Tulane traditions of outdoor classrooms, events and gatherings.

The Benenson Plaza was funded through the generosity of the Benenson family.
