Originally constructed by the New Deal’s Work Progress Administration (WPA) in 1939, Lynchburg City Stadium provides combined baseball and football stadium facilities for the city. The baseball field is home to the Lynchburg Hillcats, a class A minor league team, while the football field hosts Lynchburg City Schools’ football, lacrosse, and soccer teams and also supports various local adult leagues and community programming. While a major renovation to the baseball field was completed in 2004, the City Stadium, until now, has been left relatively untouched since its original completion.
This was the first project I assisted with at VMDO architects. My design scope included millwork detailing, conceptualizing the doubly curved roof geometry, storefront detailing, and coordination of restrooms.
