At a dedication ceremony last week, Middlebury College celebrated the opening of their new Sasaki-designed Virtue Field House, part of the Peterson Family Athletic Complex. Middlebury President Ronald D. Liebowitz headed up the dedication ceremony for the new facility, named after Middlebury 1982 alumnae Ted Virtue, and his wife, Dani Shaw Virtue.
Built as a multi-use facility, it incorporates an indoor practice space, 200 meter competition track, expanded recreation areas, and improved spectator accommodations—providing flexibility in usage for both the college and local communities. Sasaki worked with Middlebury to integrate the building into the existing campus fabric by enhancing the connection between the athletics district and main campus. As part of this strategy the Virtue Field House provides a new face to athletics and a welcoming entry to the Peterson Family Athletic Complex.
