New Campbell Sports Center is Incredibly Swanky

Oh yeah, that’s what a modern sports center should look like

Bwog found out from a tipster today that football coach Pete Mangurian recently updated his Facebook page with some photos of the new Campbell Sports Center.

Before we get too indignant over the opulence and extravagance, the old sports center was by all accounts a depressing shithole, and the new one can be used by all Columbia Athletics teams, not just football. The new center was designed by Steven Holl, a Columbia professor around the concept of “points on the ground, lines in space,” which sounds…cool.

Apparently locals around Baker think it’s a blight on the neighborhood landscape of “sedate Art Deco and Tudor-style apartment buildings.”  Bwog just hopes that the dramatic change in environment will cause an equally dramatic change in our Lions’ athletic abilities…

Here are the photos, with captions from Pete Mangurian’s page, plus two extras:

    A flat NoCo that most students will never see or take advantage of? Excellent use of funds, Columbia.

  3. Please  

    Find out whether non-athlete students and gym members will be able to use that gym as well. The Dodge weight rooms are so gross.

    Bill Campbell could have found a much better way to spend that money. SkyMall maybe.

    Not bad for athletes that couldn't beat a Jr. High School, but front like they belong in D-I. Enjoy playing Madden on your XBox in the lounge, itll be the closest to the pros (or a win) you'll get.

  12. Honestly  

    Why don't regular students have a lounge with video games and TVs... Something like a student center? All we have are stupid ramps and a piano....

    designed by STEVE HOLT!!!

  14. I honestly think think

    that Columbia has to have some sort of connections to the sofa mafia. That is the only way I can explain to myself how we manage buy to buy the ugliest motherfukkin sofas on the planet, year after year.
