collegiate ATHLETICS

Patterson Baseball Complex and Washington Trust Field is the new home of Gonzaga University's baseball program. Spectators are greeted at an entry plaza which is axially aligned with the entry to the nearby McCarthey Athletic Center, anchoring the athletic complex at the campus interface with the Spokane community.

A variety of seating options are offered including open club spaces, roof covered theater style seating and family friendly grass berm areas. A large ground level concourse connects seating areas to spectator services including concessions and restrooms. The open public space lends itself to pre- and post-game functions and is a multipurpose venue for the greater campus community.

A carefully detailed mix of precast concrete and masonry makes the facility a good neighbor for the adjacent School of Law, reinforcing an architectural theme that defines Gonzaga University Athletics.
