STEVEN HOLL ARCHITECTS’ CAMPBELL SPORTS CENTER TOPS OUT

11 January 2012

The Campbell Sports Center at Columbia University, designed by Steven Holl Architects, celebrates its topping out today. Located on the corner of West 218th street and Broadway, the Campbell Sports Center will form an inviting new gateway to the Baker Athletics Complex, the primary athletics facility for the University’s outdoor sports program.

The Campbell Sports Center aims at serving the mind, the body and the mind/body. The design concept “points on the ground, lines in space”-like field play diagrams used for football, soccer, baseball-develops from point foundations on the sloping site. Just as points and lines in diagrams yield the physical push and pull on the field, the building’s elevations push and pull in space.

With the structural frame in place, one can already experience the space that will form a new entry to the athletics complex, and the large interior space and amazing views to the city and the fields that this new facility will provide.

With construction two weeks ahead of schedule, the five-story, 48,000 square foot facility is scheduled to be completed for opening ceremonies in Fall 2012.
