Conceived as a metaphor for the body, this building is provides visibility for a 30 year old fund raising group. The Pan Mass Challenge is the Nation’s largest athletic fund raising event, yielding more than 30 million dollars annually for cancer research.
Here the building is integrated with toll booths on the Massachusetts turnpike, replacing aging infrastructure with a facility that incites one to dream. The south volume is the brain of the operations with offices, classrooms, event planning spaces and the like. The north is a three tiered training facility, the body of the operation, with a velodrome on the first floor, swimming pool on the second, and a running track on the roof. T
triathlon training is brought directly into the heart of the PM. Connecting these two are capillaries designed for bicycles to course back and forth as part of training and preparation for the main event in summer months. Capillaries spiral up each volume allowing light to stream in, as well as access for cyclists from outdoor paths.
At street level toll booths still collect revenue, but in addition to cash, and fast lanes, a PM lane is added. This gesture allows people to snub the State by not taking one of their lanes, yet take the PM lane and make a donation for an essential cause. Political commentary and expression of support all with the gesture of one’s car.
