Scope of Work

Lead Design Architect and Architect of Record, Interior Design, Master Planning

The challenge for this ensemble of four disparate structures was two-fold: create a legible, coherent micro-plan linking the art studio, training center and two stadiums to one another and to the larger context of the campus. The Nagel Art Studios, the Barton Lacrosse Stadium, the state-of-the-art Pat Bowlen Training Center and CIBER Soccer Stadium are seamlessly integrated into the character of the existing campus. The new facilities offer additional amenities to the students while enhancing the attention to detail and rich material palette.

Ciber Soccer Fields, Grandstand & Pat Bowlen Training Center

The CIBER stadium rests gently in the landscape between the soccer field and the Ritchie Center, adding 300 spectator seats and a media center. The state-of-the-art training center is sited below the soccer stadium seating area.

Nagel Art Studios

The Nagel Art Studios, named for donors Ralph and Trish Nagel, offers a dramatic space with a large, open studio area, high ceilings, concrete floors, moveable walls and abundant natural light.

Barton Lacrosse Stadium

Named in honor of legendary cable television pioneer Peter Barton, the Barton Lacrosse Stadium is the nation’s first collegiate stadium dedicated solely to the sport of lacrosse. The stadium accommodates 2,000 spectators and includes locker rooms, a concession area and viewing pavilion.
