Wartburg College Designs Hall of Fame Around Reuse of Gym Floor Logo
Basketball courts often enjoy a second life. Final Four floors, for example, are resold after the event to tournament teams and typically either reused in full or commemoratively hung, in part, on a wall. In Wartburg College’s Waverly Community Wellness Center, an alcove in the Hall of Fame Room was designed around a reuse of the center logo of the displaced competition court. Removed with care and installed in a recessed portion of the concrete slab to match the height of the surrounding carpet, the reclaimed floor was then repainted and refinished, giving the vintage logo a fresh appearance.
