Miami University McKie Field

Miami University McKie Field
We are proud to have hit another home run for Miami. Of course it is costly to build with style, but the Miami campus is a special place.
"I have thought about you several times as this park has been constructed. People have been so complimentary of the design and that credit should go to you. You have a helluva facility in Oxford, Ohio that you designed! It is awesome."
- Tracy Smith,
Head Baseball Coach, Miami University

In February 2002, the Redhawks of Miami University took the field to open a baseball season unlike any other. We had designed a new stadium on the traditional site of McKie Field, rotated so that the ticket gates and entry plaza are integrated with the campus. Students and faculty now walk through the plaza on the way home after class, hearing the sounds of the game. We reshaped the site so the stadium nestles into a gentle slope. The spectator view over the outfield fence is a vista of the wooded hills northwest of the campus.

We used the same neo-Georgian style and careful attention to architectural detailing that made our first two campus projects so successful.
