UT Bob Martinez Athletics Center


Tampa, FL




DSA provided the Architectural Services, Visualization Services and Interior Design Services for this 55,000 SF facility. Improvements to the building included a new roof, new main entry, new exterior envelope and fully redesigned interiors. DSA completely renovated the lobby to the athletics offices and gymnasiums and added a two story study lounge with private study rooms for the students. DSA designed the striking Sword and Shield Room which included Design and Construction Documents for two iconographic sculptures. The first was a 45’ tall sword with internal LED lighting that is bisected by the building envelope with half on the exterior and the other half in the Sword and Shield Room interior. Complementing this is a 24’ diameter Shield incorporated into the 30’ high ceiling features. Construction was completed on a fast-tracked 9-month schedule for the university.
