UCLA Spieker Aquatic Center

The $10M aquatic center includes an outdoor 52m competition swimming pool with a 10m Olympic dive tower, spectator seating for 2,500, intercollegiate and visiting team lockers, lounge and coaches facility, ticketing and vending, and support spaces.

The new aquatic center occupies a site previously occupied by four tennis courts and spectator seating. The design links the new aquatic center to the existing Sunset Canyon Pool, additional tennis courts and the Sunset Canyon arrival circle and entry. The project achieved LEED certification equivalency due largely to the fact that the facilities are almost entirely naturally ventilated.
