MUSC drug discovery plaza

about the project

The Medical University of South Carolina’s Drug Discovery plaza will be a very unique and creative space.

Located in downtown Charleston, the site presented many challenges in terms of situating a contemporary building and site program within the traditional aesthetic of downtown Charleston.

The site, currently in its construction phase, is designed to include a large grove of elms, a series of stepped seat /retaining walls, a system of stormwater infiltration bands and raingardens, a uniquely modern paver plaza, and a bosque of river birches set amongst a large sweetgrass meadow. 

Approximately 90% of the plantings will be native.  The project is slated to be LEED silver.
