The Legends Aquatic Center establishes a connection with the athletic precinct and serves as a catalyst for energizing both the aquatics program and the southwest edge of campus.

Floor Plan

The Legends Aquatic Center is a state-of-the-art facility providing exclusive training space for UC Berkeley’s intercollegiate aquatic athletes. It features a new 50M stretch pool with a two-centerline dive tower, locker rooms, and a multipurpose training room. The design establishes a connection with the university, creating a regional athletics precinct, and, at night, is a glowing beacon activating what was once a dark corner of the campus. The sustainably designed facility is highly functional, efficient, and durable—and exceeds sustainability requirements mandated by UC Berkeley. The project was designed to take advantage of daylighting—all occupied spaces are daylight using either windows or skylights. Additionally, the project achieves 40% water reduction, utilizes 20% recycled materials, FSC-certified wood products, and all low-emitting materials. The project is targeting LEED Silver.
