The University Of Texas – University Avenue

The southern entrance to the University of Texas at Austin is marked with a new monument sign and landscape that will greet visitors and serve as a focal point against the backdrop of the Littlefield Fountain, the South Mall, and the Tower.

Limestone and granite benches echo the language of the University architecture, while the planting draws from the Central Texas landscape. The petite planting palette reflects the deep greens of the omnipresent Juniper trees and native golden grasses, translated into a grid of emerald agaves within a field of Grama grasses. In springtime, the space is further animated by the arrival of bluebonnets, the state flower of Texas.
