The land use task group’s strategic plan goals (21 and 24) include responsibility for campus land use planning and implementation as well as building projects such as the Valders and Miller-Dieseth remodeling, Baker expansion, and the Aquatic Center.
The Landscape Vision of Jens Jensen
Imagine the native landscape of Mid-America, here in the Upper Midwest, with its woodlands, natural meadows, flowing water, rock cliffs, sunshine and dappled shade, ever-changing as seasons pass, as clouds part, as the sun sets and the moon rises.
Architect Jens Jensen imagined this landscape. He lived in it, studied it, and worked out a plan to reshape the Luther College campus into an icon of this woodland and meadow region. He wanted to “awaken people to the beauties around them, and to reconnect them to the biological heritage” at their doorstep.
