Hayward Field

In addition to leading major renovations to the University of Oregon’s historic Hayward Field in preparation for the 2008 Track and Field Olympic Trials, TVA Architects was tasked with creating a masterplan vision for the long-term future of the facility, and its multi-phase development into a world-class complex. The vision plan calls for major developments to the super-block around Hayward Field, including a new indoor track facility, a practice track, multi-purpose rec fields, additional above-and-below-grade parking, and facilities to accommodate not only competitive athletes but campus intramural and recreational programs as well.

The vision for this facility includes training areas that will interact with physiology and sports-medicine academic and research programs to the benefit of the student athlete and the recreational user alike.

TVA Architects was selected by the University of Oregon to be the design architect on a major renovation and masterplan vision for Hayward Field, in preparation for the 2008 Track and Field Olympic Trials. Hayward Field is widely recognized as a sports mecca, an historic icon in the world of track and field with deep emotional ties to the student body, alumni, international running community and the City of Eugene.

TVA consulted with nationally recognized track and field expert Don Paige to realize the University’s vision, which involves both acknowledging and preserving elements of Hayward Field’s legendary past, and upgrading the facility for the next century and its return to preeminence on the world stage during the 2008 Olympic Trials
