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.
