The Athletic Field House/Fusion Building challenges the norm and expectations of design and materiality for University and Athletics facilities. As the centerpiece to the stadium and athletic complex, this "gateway" facility is intended to redefine the building type especially for Pace University. This unique building will complement a successful athletics program, University programming and support community events. We feel that architecture should be progressive, dynamic and expressive of the speed, agility and power of athletics.
The Fusion Building is a sustainable approach for this multi-phased facility for a campus with limited footprint opportunities. The Athletic Center will add a Sports Performance Center at the base of the building while future phases will include programming for administration and academic functions at the upper stories.
Likewise, the upgraded baseball and multi-purpose stadium and new softball venues will equally be important to the overall project. The venues will share a common language of materials, colors and building components to present a meaningful composition. This important legacy project heralds a new era in Pace Athletics.
