Boone Pickens Stadium
A keystone project in the improvement of Oklahoma State University’s athletic facilities that has spanned 13 years, and various changes in University staff and coaches, but only one architect - Crafton Tull. The field lever of the West End Zone is all about performance on the field. All aspects of the design are geared towards the game. The locker room, equipment room, sports medicine area, and strength and conditioning areas provide state-of-the-art facilities for every need of the football program. The West End Zone will also house the coaches’ locker room, a team theater, offensive and defensive meeting rooms, the Training Table commissary, a loading dock, and back-of-house support spaces. Encompassing 144,675 square feet, this area of the stadium allows plenty of space for team members and staff to focus, prepare, rest, reflect, and receive treatment and rehabilitation. The addition of the end zone bowl completes the stadium, with gate access increasing from 18 to 60, accommodating 70,000 fans instead of the original 43,000. The West End Zone adds 13,500 seats and 58 suites, bringing the stadium total to 60,200 seats and 102 suites.
