The Carmelo K. Anthony Basketball Center is designed as a focused learning center that will both attract and retain top athletes in the competitive world of NCAA Division I athletics. The building includes two NCAA-regulation basketball courts, strength and conditioning rooms, hydrotherapy pools, classroom space, a video room, coaches’ offices, and locker-room facilities for men’s and women’s teams.

The focal point of the project is the double-height practice area located at the center of the building and enclosed by translucent panels. Support spaces and coaches’ offices are closely arranged around this area, providing constant access and views to the courts.
