Dods Hall Fitness Center
The State University of New York at Fredonia
Fredonia, New York
Proposed sketches suggest how natural light and views may be reasonably incorporated into the existing natatorium construction. The existing tall volume offers opportunities to incorporate HVAC systems that will need to be reconfigured as sections of the exterior wall are opened and replaced with glass. The introduction of extensive new glazing will contribute in a spectacular way to transforming the image of Dods Hall.
Given the size, there are many opportunities within the fitness area to include program elements such as a fitness instruction space or room, an area such as a "cyber juice bar", a climbing wall and perhaps an indoor running track.
