Hayward Field Tower
Hayward Field at the University of Oregon has hosted numerous USA Olympic Track and Field Trials and NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships since its original construction in 1919. The stadium has had more “World’s Greatest Athlete” titles given to decathlon world record breakers than at any other venue. The renovations from 2018-2020 included the addition of a 9-story tower at the northeast corner of the stadium. This landmark, designed by SRG, was inspired by the Olympic torch and pays tribute to the university’s legacy depicting five Oregon track and field icons. Using Zahner's ImageWall® technology, the perforation pattern displays images of coach Bill Bowerman, and athletes, Steve Prefontaine, Raevyn Rogers, Ashton Eaton and Otis Davis.
