Leverone Field House
Leverone Field House was designed by Italian architect Pier Luigi Nervi, whose distinctive sports palaces for the 1960 Olympic Games in Rome earned him the laudatory title, "Poet in Concrete." Leverone is situated between the southeast corner of the football field and South Park Street. Under two acres of high, arching roof, this 91,800 square foot building contains indoor track facilities, a weight room, and an indoor practice area for football, lacrosse, soccer, softball, golf, and rugby. Leverone Field House was completed in 1965. The facility underwent a recent major renovation and now features better lighting, mechanical curtains, and an advanced sound system. Among the upgrades are structural changes to the roof, an improved ventilation system, and a resurfaced floor. In addition, more natural light streams into the facility and some doors were removed, making it an exceptional training facility.
