University of Oklahoma

Gaylord Family Oklahoma Memorial Stadium 

Norman, OK

For the South End Zone stadium renovations, Xibitz executed the Populous designed recruiting spaces and lobby displays celebrating OU’s prodigious history and enduring success. The project included a curved championship display with a built-in touch-screen tablet from which visitors can select a background template and take a selfie from a ceiling-mounted camera, dimensional environmental graphics throughout the player-access spaces and hype areas, as well as fully integrated, pulsating music-driven lighting that is tailored for game-day or recruiting tours.

University of Cincinnati

George & Helen Smith Athletic Museum

Cincinnati, OH

To help the University of Cincinnati engage star students and student-athletes, Xibitz assisted in creating one impressive experience after another at the University’s athletic museum. The project’s goals: Communicate the benefits and notable achievements of the University’s educational excellence and rich athletic heritage, utilizing the building’s central atrium space as a museum, archive, welcome center and recruiting vehicle.

As the contract manager for Perkins&Will | Eva Maddox Branded Environments, Xibitz produced design and build features including large-scale environmental graphics, signage elements, interactive kiosks, archival artifact displays, and interactive projection for multimedia communication, all within a pre-existing budget and very tight schedule. Custom glass display cases and engaging interactive experiences fill the Museum. Additionally, 120-foot diagonal Holopro screens are suspended six floors above the Museum’s atrium and display a visiting athlete’s most recent footage. The Celebration Walk is a custom terrazzo floor with motion sensors that trigger highlight footage on video monitors as visitors walk by. Laser-cut, internally lit 12-foot steel poles are motion-censored to display backlit text and graphics when triggered.
