Gallagher Designs was called on to create the "special moments" in the monumental building that is the new symbol for Oregon Football. As you walk in the building the first thing you see is the MAQUETTE case which showcases Oregon's different uniforms from 1893-2012. From there you walk to the substantial trophy case that displays Oregon's finest awards. The structure is grand but streamlined and elegant at the same time as the trophies seem to float in mid-air. A door off to the side of the trophy case is a jewelry box of a room that displays some of Oregon's bowl rings. The RING ROOM is an intimate space where a quiet, dimly lit enclosure becomes an experience in itself when a motion sensor detects a visitor. Lights engage between wooden blades that hold the ring cases as a sound story plays scenes from Autzen and ducks in flight. As recruits and players walk off the sixth floor elevator, they are part of a flock of DUCKS in flight. The ducks symbolize the 211 Oregon players who have been drafted to the NFL. We are thrilled to be a part of Oregon history and this incredible football program. After all, Tim Gallagher is an Oregon graduate. And right now feels like a great time to be a duck.

    This is a history of Oregon's football uniforms from 1893-2012. We created the maquettes with 3D printer technology, and Tim Gallagher painted each by hand.

    The black glass wall surrounding the maquette case is angled out to capture the case within the wall. The back and ceiling of the case is fractured metal with a chrome finish to reflect the 18 maquettes. There is a frosted acrylic base with LED lighting that provides a soft glow of light and color to illuminate the maquettes.

    This elegant metal case with a non-directional stainless interior finish frames Oregon's football trophies. By utilizing a thin cable system, each trophy appears to be suspended in mid-air while 16 recessed lights illuminate the trophies from above. Vinyl text and trophy illustrations are used to map out the year and title of each award.

    Different views from the rendering show the grand scale of the trophy case. It also gives a sense of the floating trophies inside and how each one stands out. This was achieved with stainless 3/16” plates the trophies sit on, and their ceiling/floor connection with an Arakawa cable system.

    The ring cases are designed to mimic the fractured elements of the maquette case. The background is mirrored so the viewer can see all angles of the ring inside. The cases are constructed of steel frames and beveled glass. The bases of the ring cases are frosted acrylic with LED lighting below that changes from yellow to green. There are 11 cases-4 large and 7 small.

    The ring room showcases all of the rings Oregon has won through the years. A series of high gloss black wooden ribs line the walls of the room, framing the Oregon ‘O’ at the north and south end walls. Eleven ring cases are set within the wood ribs to hold Oregon's treasures. As a visitor crosses the threshold to the room, it triggers the LED lighting behind the ribs and a sound story plays that reflect the noises of Autzen Stadium.

    A series of chrome ducks weave through the skybridge representing the ‘flock’ of Oregon Ducks that have been drafted into the NFL. The duck's color represents a specific draft round and each Hall-of-Famer has a gold-dipped head. The finishes on the ducks give a nod to Nike's infamous Oregon helmets. There is a carbon fiber set, a matte black, and the yellow, green and silver ducks have a chrome finish. Each duck has the initials of the player it represents on its body.

    Each U of O player drafted to the NFL is celebrated with a duck in flight, but they are also named on a "blade" under the team on which they were drafted. The metal blade has a dark gray finish on the front and sides with a silver chrome finish on back. A glass panel has the names of NFL draft picks from U of O in silver second-surface vinyl. The glass stand-offs are finished dark gray to match the surrounding metal.

    These gaming stations are powder coated steel frames painted with a high gloss automotive paint finish. The metal framework is painted with a fade between four colors: dark gray, green, yellow, silver. The ‘DUCKS’ panel slides open to access the PS3, controllers, speaker and wiring.

    All six PS3 game consoles have a custom design and finish.

    We lasered these custom floor panels to sit beneath each weight station.

    Wall panels are 4 feet wide by 8 feet tall. We lasered a duck wing design on each panel that tiles together to make a cohesive pattern on a statement wall in the media conference room.

    As an ode to some of Oregon Football's greatest players, their numbers and hometowns have been lasered on wood panels in the recruiting lounge.

    39 walnut and glass jersey cases were created as Hatfield-Dowlin Complex donor gifts. There is an "O" pattern laser engraved down both sides, and the name of the building adorns the top. There is a small box built into the bottom of each case that holds a custom brass key to the building.

    Walnut and plex helmet cases were given to eight of the top donors for the building. Oregon wings are lasered into the sides, and the name of the donor and the building name are lasered onto the top. The plex slider is routed out with the "O" logo so hints of the Oregon helmet can be seen. The duck on top is an exact replica of the ducks in the Hatfield-Dowlin complex.

    We created 36 walnut slider boxes with "keys to the building" inside. The custom keys are solid brass and sit in a green chrome base that complements the ducks in flight on the sixth floor skybridge.
