Our second major recreation center in Plano, the Muehlenbeck Center set a new bar. Responding to a large but challenging site surrounded by schools and bisected by a wetland, the design solution embraced instead of fought those challenges. The curve of the creek established the form of the façade, with parking opposite and connected by foot bridges. The center boasts indoor and outdoor leisure pools, an 8-lane lap pool, double gym, ample fitness space, multiple programming spaces, and an elevated track. This highly successful project has served as a model for many cities who also dare to dream big.
