East Oakland Sports Center

Citation Award


As one of the few LEED-certified natatoriums in the U.S., the new 25,000 square foot community sports, recreation, and aquatics center is a project for social and environmental change in East Oakland. Designed as a composition of glass and metal clad forms, the inviting, transparent complex is a beacon of community pride.
