NCAA Hall of Champions and NCAA Headquarters--page 1 (of 4 pages)

Michael Graves
Headquarters, 1999; Hall of Fame, 2000



Plan of the two buildings--from Michael Graves official web site

The Hall of Fame is at the front while the rectangular office building is at the rear. The west side of the site was under construction when these photos were taken in 2010.
 

Monumental facade--south side

The Hall of Fame is appropriately monumental, befitting its honorific purpose. Seven tall bays march across the front with arched windows forming an arcade of sorts. The buildings are situated in a park-like setting with fountains, pools and canals. See Google map.
 
 
 
Masonry blind oculi occupy the top register while the piers flanking the bays have masonry buttresses serving as holders for the tall flags.
 

The hemispherical museum

The museum proper lies behind the monumental 3-story hallway at the front. See views of the interior.
