Tiger Carroll Ginn Concourse, Auburn University, Auburn, Alabama Above & Left: The Tiger Carroll Ginn Concourse is the last of the pedestrian design projects approved by the Auburn University Board of Trustees in 2002. These projects were envisioned to remove vehicles from the campus core. This concourse completed the connectivity of all previous pedestrian projects to the northern edge of campus. Completed in 2012, the 22 x 12-foot water wall feature has become the centerpiece of the concourse and an iconic piece of the College of Engineering's subcampus.
