This fall, Brown University inaugurated the first phase of 1100 Architect’s renovation of the Olney-Margolies Athletic Center (OMAC). Bringing what had been an outdated athletics facility up to contemporary standards, the renovation transforms dark and cramped spaces into open and daylit environments that enhance the student-athlete experience at Brown. The new design also makes circulation throughout the building more efficient, upgrades its aging systems, and creates additional space for recovery and training and for teammates to come together for meetings.
