This physical education complex houses two hockey rinks, a gymnasium, a swimming pool, multiple squash courts, training and exercise rooms, locker and shower facilities, and offices. Tree-like columns frame a circulation spine lit through a clerestory, creating a social atmosphere and viewing galleries throughout the facility. Triangular-shaped space trusses fabricated from corrosion-resistant pipe span across the exterior of the structure suspending the roof above open athletic spaces.
