Ithaca College Athletics & Events Center

Ithaca, New York

Award Winner - May 2012

The program for the Athletics and Events Center focuses on three spaces: the indoor fieldhouse, natatorium and outdoor turf field. The fieldhouse needed to meet the practice, competition, intramurals, club and recreational needs of as many students as possible. The design allows for multipurpose uses including a 200-meter track with runways for long jump and pole vaults, as well as sizing and marking the floor for lacrosse, field hockey, soccer and tennis. A separate throwing cage allows for simultaneous weight throw practice and competition. Elaborate netting allows the fieldhouse to be subdivided so the infield can be used at the same time as the track. The fieldhouse is also used for concerts and speaking events, so substantial acoustic panels on the roof, both metal and fiber wall panels on all walls and a perforated metal damping box on the north end were added to provide excellent acoustics.
