NC State University - Coaches’ Corner

Project Summary

Coaches' Corner is an outdoor plaza adjacent to historic Reynolds Coliseum on the NC State campus. Within this outdoor space there are four statues celebrating the accomplishments of NC State’s most recognized basketball coaches: Everett Case, Norm Sloan, Jim Valvano and Kay Yow. The plan for this space orchestrated the placement of the life-size statues and created a cohesive space for visitors that is in accompaniment to the Basketball Hall of Fame inside the Coliseum. Some of the special features of the space include a unique paving pattern that ties into the surrounding context of the newly renovated Talley Student Center and a series of serpentine seat walls creating intimate gathering spaces.
