Moscow, Idaho

Envisioned as a recreational village whose rugged, angular exterior mirrors the region's landscape. The 84,000-square-foot facility houses a central two-story atrium/lounge; cafe; two multi-court basketball/volleyball gymnasiums; a multipurpose activity court (MAC); a suspended indoor jogging track; multipurpose/aerobics rooms; and a climbing area with a 55-foot freeform pinnacle, and bouldering and top-rope climbing walls. Other amenities include cardiovascular fitness and weight-training areas, health and fitness testing labs, locker rooms, program offices, administrative offices, and storage. In addition to accommodating indoor activities, the center is also home to a nationally recognized outdoor recreation program. The building's innovative design and pivotal location – in the heart of an area slated to become the campus's residential center – underscore the university's focus on healthy living, and enhance student and faculty recruitment and retention. Interior design elements – such as an exposed branch-like wood roof structure, a gallery of clerestory windows, and a concrete floor stamped and colored to emulate a forest floor – extend the area's natural environment indoors and validate the university's commitment to sustainability.
