Brooklyn College – West Quad Center

Brooklyn, NY

Completed in September 2009, the West Quad Center is the first new building on the Brooklyn College campus in nearly 40 years. The 145,000 sq. ft. glass-fronted structure serves as both a one-stop student services center and the hub of state-of-the-art physical education and recreational facilities.

Athletics are spread over three floors, including the lower level that houses the new natatorium. Counsilman-Hunsaker in association with Rafael Vinoly Architects designed the new natatorium to include an eight lane 25-yard competition pool with 1-meter and 3-meter diving boards and a lift for swimmers with disabilities. Not only is the pool open for recreational use for those who wish to swim a few laps but the new pool has also resurrected the men’s and women’s swim teams. Adjacent to the pool are two weight and fitness rooms, equipment check-out counter, and four sets of locker and shower rooms.
