Building History

In 1995, the landscape architecture and planning firm, SWA Group, worked with the Stanford University Planning Office to produce a comprehensive plan focusing on the various athletic fields spread out on the large Stanford Campus. The SWA/Balsley.com web site said of this master plan in 2020: "We began a master plan that provided a framework for 22 individual projects under the Department of Athletics, Physical Education, and Recreation (DAPER). Using a grid that differs from that of the rest of the campus and thus distinguishes the old from the new, we created a new arrival plaza for cars, a pedestrian entry, parking, and track and field venues. We also rebuilt the key north-south axis through the area, a critical link with Olmsted’s original plan." (See SWA/Balsley.com, “Stanford University Campus Planning and Projects,” accessed 06/17/2020.) Landscape architect John L. Wong served as the primary SWA contact on the master plan project.
