UIUC Lincoln Hall Banding
UIUC Lincoln Hall Plan   UIUC Lincoln Hall Brich Trees
Lincoln Hall at the University of Illinois Urbana Champaign opened in 1911 as a memorial to the sixteenth president of the United States, but has not had a renovation since 1930 when the western wing has added. It is the second most heavily used classroom building on campus and home to Liberal Arts and Science. The current renovation preserves its historic landmark characteristics to once again occupy a central point of Illini pride on campus.

The exterior landscape will maintain the historic flavor of the quad by replacing the existing yew hedge, preserving and adding major shade trees, and planting new ornamentals. The two courtyards, which are interior to the building but open to the elements, are designed to be sympathetic to the new modern glass curtain wall which will be incorporated into one of the internal facades. The courtyards pictured above are designed for circulation, contemplation, and socializing. There are two small green roof areas which were deisgned as sedum meadows.
