Campbell Sports Centre

The new 48,000 square foot Campbell Sports Center at the corner of 218th Street and Broadway aims to:

- Create new visibility for Columbia Athletics
- Form an inviting new gate for Baker Athletics Complex
- Shape state of the art athletic spaces with interconnecting flow
- Extend Field Play onto and into the building with stepped ramps
- Sustainability and ecological innovation

The Campbell Sport Center serves as a new "gateway" to Baker Field at the prominent urban corner where Broadway meets 10th Avenue and the 1 Subway line-the northernmost crossing of Broadway with avenues that run the length of Manhattan. The design concept "points on the ground, lines in space"-like field play diagrams used for football, soccer, baseball-develops from point foundations on the sloping site. Just as points and lines in diagrams yield the physical push and pull on the field, the building's elevations push and pull in space. External Stairs, "lines in space," and terraces extend the field play up and into the building and give views from the upper levels over the Baker Athletics complex and Manhattan with the Empire State and Chrysler buildings in the distance.
