University of Minnesota - Athletes Village
The Athletes Village is a 387,000 sq. ft. new construction and renovation project that provides state of the art academic, practice, and training facilities to the roughly 700 student athletes at the University of Minnesota. The complex is comprised of a Center for Excellence academic building, Basketball Practice Facility, Football Performance Facility, Indoor Football Practice Facility, and Training Table dining space.
The following images represent the contributions I made before the winning project proposal through schematic design. During this time the complex design incorporated a "Ring of Honor" circulation space that celebrated the individual program achievements while connecting the entire complex. Additionally, the complex design had incorporated a high rise component which was later modified due to a reduction in project scope.
