St. John's Entry Plaza and Fountain Reconstruction
.5 Acre Site
A prominent and historic piece of architecture on Creighton University’s campus, St. John’s Church acts as a nexus, attracting students and community members to its doors.
The reconstruction of St. John’s Entry Plaza and Fountain aims to revitalize the public realm in front of this historic building and complete the final piece in the redesign of California Mall, the main promenade through Creighton’s campus. Aligning with the future campus master plan, this space is envisioned to be a grand entry onto campus, serving as a functional pedestrian and ceremonial plaza that emphasizes the existing character and architectural details of its environment. The intent of this project was to design a plaza that could be activated year-round and support the long-term use of both the parish and the university. These goals were accomplished through the careful selection of durable materials, self-healing planting strategies, and rigorous cycles of ideation.
The reconstruction of the St. John’s Plaza and Fountain today is significant as it carries on a legacy of reinvestment and renewal, continuing to support Creighton as an international attraction and critical institution that draws top talent to the state.
