The satellite campus for Clemson's International Center for Automotive Research sits on a 250-acre parcel in the Carolina Piedmont region. SALT DESIGN STUDIO was commissioned to design and consult on establishment and management of native meadows for seven acres, and create a broad ecological framework for the entire campus landscape. Instead of turf grass, a canvas of indigenous plants re-introduces wildlife habitats and minimizes maintenance. A trio of new basins provide wet habitat, and captures and infiltrates stormwater. The meadows feature grass-dominant uplands and colorful, diverse wet lowlands.
