Peter Stott Center Renovation + Viking Pavilion
Peter Stott Center Renovation + Viking PavilionPortland, OR 2019
Located on Portland State University’s campus at the south end of the historic South Park Blocks, this project involved the revitalization and expansion of PSU’s Peter W. Stott Center. The project completely transformed the existing outdated, inward-focused building, constructed in 1966, into a vibrant and welcoming facility that supports a wide range of functions, including academics, athletics and general student use.
The centerpiece of the project is Viking Pavilion, a multi-use arena that will host events ranging from competitions to concerts to commencements. The project encompasses areas of renovation and new construction, with the majority of new construction on the eastern, park-facing half, including the new arena and a new exterior. This serves to shift the center of the building’s use and activity to directly engage the park and the heart of campus.
In addition to the arena, new program areas include a diverse range of student gathering and study areas, general-use classrooms, and a café. Renovations prioritized spaces that benefit all student-athletes, including sports medicine areas, an academic center, and a new athletics weight room located in a repurposed natatorium.
