Introduction


This building is an athletic college, where students do not only study sports, but the science of athletic, health and physical education along with the human body. The gymnasium is the center of this learning space, and is seen from outside as a large rust colored volume with a ceiling high corner window, allowing glimpses of what the volume is for. The remainder of the building is a white concrete volume devoted to classrooms, library, and various other programmatic needs. On the interior, though, the space is much more open, without the strict divisions implied by the exterior, allowing a dynamic, flowing, and adaptable space within. Glass walls and movable walls add to this impression, and allow the space within to move as the needs of education change.
