The Al '51 and Barrie Zesiger
Sports and Fitness Center has been considered an architectural
marvel since first opening its doors to the MIT community in the
Fall of 2002. Hailed for its extensive programming possibilities as
well as its breathtaking glass facade, the Zesiger Center was
honored as one of 10 national Facility of Merit Winners at the 22nd
Annual Athletic Business Conference on December 5, 2003 in the
Orlando County Convention Center. The awards program recognizes
facilities that set the design and functionality standard for
athletic, recreation and fitness projects.
The Zesiger Sports and Fitness Center features a triple-height natatorium, complete with an Olympic-size pool, a separate, six-lane, 25-yard instructional pool as well as amphitheater seating for 450 spectators. A myriad of fitness rooms, six international squash courts, a multipurpose activity court, locker rooms and administrative offices for athletics, physical education and recreation complement the facility's most prominent feature.
