PRINCIPLE 4

Even as structures on the campus grow in size, they should maintain

a human

scale. Both in massing and in faรงade treatment, buildings should be articulated into constituent parts so as to mediate

between the pedestrian scale

and the scale of the whole building.

Taller buildings should

step down their massing to no more than five stories where they are adjacent to public spaces, and large expanses of very uniform faรงade treatment (especially top to bottom) should be avoided in favor of more responsiveness and particularity. Buildings with horizontal dimensions greater than 200 feet should incorporate changes

in

massing and/or faรงade treatment to prevent the building from overwhelming its surroundings.
