Iowa State University: North End Zone and Sports Performance Center
Iowa State University
In collaboration with Substance Architecture, Confluence was hired for site design services at Iowa State University.
With the recent explosion in enrollment within the University, the athletics department has invested millions of dollars toward increased academic and training resources for their student-athletes, and upgrades to their iconic home, Jack Trice Stadium. These investments are what allowed the development of two adjacent projects, the Sports Performance Center and North End Zone Plaza.
The site is intended as a gathering point of thousands of individuals on gameday, while also serving students and staff operating within the Sports Performance Center on a day-to-day basis. The dual purpose of the site has demanded a balance of paved spaces to facilitate efficient circulation while introducing green spaces and effective stormwater management practices.
