Main Mall Water Feature
The pedestrian experience has been improved along the two main walkways in campus, Main Mall and University Boulevard. Where these two pedestrian walkways meet is a new water feature that acts as a visual reference point as the centre of campus. It has created a social hub where people can linger, study and meet. In broad daylight, signage is clearly visible from a distance; in the evenings a ring of colour backlights the flowing fountain. Recognition signage etched into the concrete benches commemorates former UBC President Martha Piper’s important role in the growth of UBC.
