The Hartfield-Dowlin Complex is a project designed to represent the innovation and importance of the football program of the University of Oregon located in the city of Eugene.
The project was designed by the ZGF Architects practice and it spreads over 145000 square feet with a black glass façade that ensures the solar glare protection while also offering privacy to the persons inside to promote the ethic of stealth and complexity of the program.
There are 40 feet of cantilevers and the complex hosts facilities for the staff and athletes with a public lobby and reception area celebrating the accomplishments of the Oregon Ducks. The central space hosts the weight room, diagnostic/timing track, offices for the coaches and staff, video theaters, nine position rooms, meeting rooms for the offensive and defensive coaches and another meeting room for the coaching staff.
You can find a full-service dining facilitiy with over 200 seats, a nutrition center, a room for interviews and a video editing and distribution center. The main space is of course the enhanced grass football field and there are also two new synthetic turf practice fields.
