University of Arizona

Tucson, AZ

The University of Arizona was the first university in the state of Arizona, founded in 1885, and is considered the flagship of Arizona’s three public universities. To remain competitive, the team of TMP/Breckenridge Group Architects and Counsilman-Hunsaker was retained by the university to design a new outdoor aquatic venue known as the Hillenbrand Aquatic Center.

Design included demolition of the existing diving well and towers to make way for a new 8,900 sq. ft. 25-meter by 33-meter pool, a 10-meter diving tower with platforms and springboard diving, and a 130 sq. ft. 10 person whirlpool spa. Also featured is a sparger system for divers in training, which provides a soft landing cushion of aerated water by introducing diffused air into the water below the diving components.

This contemporary championship pool, exhibiting cosmopolitan high style, will undoubtedly generate even more excitement at this prestigious university in Tucson.
