ETFE installation underway: UCLA Mo Ostin Basketball Facility
The new Mo Ostin Basketball Practice Facility (University of California Los Angeles (UCLA)) gets its skylights made of Texlon® ETFE by Vector Foiltec.
Texlon® ETFE for UCLA
Designed by Kevin Daly Architects, this state of the art space will offer practice gyms, locker rooms, and training areas for both the men’s and women’s basketball programs, as well as other athletic programs. By creating a separate facility from where actual games are played, the overall experience for players and coaches is improved. There is less of a time crunch, allowing for more flexibility with both academics and athletics for the student athletes.
In addition to the state of the art amenities that the new facility features, it is trending with the latest technology in stadium design. The Texlon® ETFE material that is incorporated into the design, will create a perfect atmosphere with controlled amounts of the healthy Southern California sunlight. Acoustic comfort is another major factor created through the foil material, making this a go-to place for athletes on campus.
Named after legendary music industry executive and philanthropist Morris “Mo” Ostin, the Mo Ostin Basketball Center is on-schedule to open in fall 2017.
