Student Designers Create Modern Pavilions for Little-League Fans in Rural Appalachia

Third-year architecture students at Virginia Tech recently built a strikingly contemporary fieldhouse for a little league baseball diamond in Clifton Forge, Virginia. Made from solid steel and wood, the Sharon Fieldhouse was designed for "extreme openness."

Design/buildLAB's Marie Zawistowski described the students to Architect Magazine as the studio's "first group of minimalists." Three separate pavilions they designed feature a covered picnic area, kitchen, restrooms, and storage space. Tables are made from leftover steel, and the white oak ceiling was locally sawed.
