About the Project

landLAB conducted a series of studies for entry signage options to be located at the University of California San Diego north point entry, at the intersection of north torrey pines road and north point entry drive. The solution is comprised of three 6 foot rammed earth walls that mimic the sloping terrain. Signage lettering will be made of corten steel. The walls are positioned to achieve maximum visibility from all sides of the intersection. The planting concept establishes swaths of low-water use and native California plants, succulents, and groundcovers with a backdrop of mature torrey pine trees to provide a naturalized – yet still somewhat formal – landscape character.
