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:
