To maintain the concept of the prairie landscape, the upper levels of the university are left in a natural open field-like landscape treatment. Playing fields will be terraced, and parking lots both terraced and bermed, so that the automobile is kept out of sight and wind and drifting snow are controlled. The coulees adjacent to the academic area, however, will be planted to provide shelter and shaded relief from the exposure of the open fields.

Landscape Analysis and Development Guidelines
A separate analysis of our unique landscape was prepared in order to develop landscape guidelines in 1969 through Erickson-Massey Architects by the landscape architecture and urban design firm Man Taylor Muret Ltd. of Calgary-Winnipeg.
