Morgan State University Tyler Hall

Morgan State University’s new Tyler Hall is the latest addition to the 152-year-old campus in the midst of an transformation.

The modern, $88 million building off Cold Spring Lane and Perring Parkway is another expansion of the urban campus that has been experiencing a growth spurt over the past decade. Morgan opened The Earl G. Graves School of Business and Management in 2015 and the Martin D. Jenkins Hall for Behavioral and Social Sciences on campus in 2017.

Live Green worked with Barton Malow and the MSU campus community in a participatory creative process to design striking landscaping work that would embody the university’s heritage, identity,
and mission.

Key design principles include approximately 6,700 sq.ft. of lawn restoration, laying of topsoil in all planting areas and bioretention ponds, and installation and relocation of trees,
shrubs, and perennials. As the new home to student services and various business functions, it will foster a sense of community and synergy.

Upon its opening, Tyler Hall will become a vital touchpoint for the university. It’s conveniently located in the heart of campus and when students visit Morgan’s campus for the very first time, many will have their first stop in Tyler Hall. Live Green is very lucky to provide the backdrop for first impressions.
