Honorable Mention - Top 10 Finalist - Cal Craven - Redesign Your School Athletic Pavilion | 2014 National High School Architecture Competition #185
What's the problem here? Getting started on your athletic pavilion design.
Background- Our new high school has just been completely redone this year. All new indoor facilities include a wrestling room, a weight room, two gyms, and athletic offices. These are situated off of the rotunda, to the northwest side of the building.
Problem Statement- I have to look at the area available to me and decide what is best used in which areas. One problem I have to consider is the art and technology wing, which is attached to the athletic pavilion, I need to consider that students have to be able to access this area, along with parents who might not want to walk through the school to get to the athletic pavilion. In the same category of problem, spacing, I would like to really keep athletic areas close together. Easier access and storage, as well as a better after school friendly atmosphere across sports should result from this. Finally, I would like to coordinate styles from the educational aspect of the school to the athletic aspect of the school. Most of the outdoor athletic facilities have not been updated when the school was built in a Jeffersonian style. I want to incorporate this style across campus.
