UR Robins Stadium featured in Inform Magazine
Check out this month’s issue of Inform Magazine for a spread on the new Robins Stadium at University of Richmond! The project received a Merit Award for Contextual Design from the Virginia AIA in November.
The university gained the necessary city and community approvals by thoroughly and sensitively responding to their expressed concerns about scale and impact. Seating arrangement and detailing of the Collegiate Gothic exterior minimize its size in what the jury described as a commendable interpretation of the campus’s architecture.
- The design custom fits the 8,700-seat stadium to the site and campus environment.
- The new stadium maintains campus-plan continuity on the site of the former First Market Stadium.
- Through close cooperation, the university responded thoroughly and sensitively to all community concerns.
