AJP Designs Digital Basketball Hall of History for Michigan State University
Cutting-edge Technology Application for a New and Unique Experiential Space to Celebrate the Rich History of Spartan Basketball
EAST LANSING, MI – OCTOBER 2017
Anthony James Partners (AJP) was honored to be asked by Michigan State University to help create the next generation of Hall of Fame design. The market leader in AV design and consulting, AJP worked collaboratively with MSU, Rossetti Architects and Barton Mallow Company to develop and implement the Tom Izzo Basketball Hall of History. AJP worked closely with MSU to define the vision, determine a high-profile inventory of digital assets and to apply a comprehensive audio visual system design. In addition to design and development, AJP provided procurement and construction oversight services for yet another exceptional technology project with the university.
Tom Izzo Basketball Hall of History
As part of a larger $20 million addition to the Breslin Student Events Center, the Tom Izzo Basketball Hall of History is a 26,000 SF space that blends customized, state-of-the-art programmable display technology with historical tributes designed celebrate Spartan accomplishments and to enhance recruitment efforts. The space has the flexibility to also be programmed for the more than 200 yearly events hosted by the Breslin Center for the greater Lansing area, ranging from major concerts to commencement ceremonies.

“Unbelievable,” said Tom Izzo of the space, noting that it is the technology that makes the Hall of History unique. “It is special.” Head Coach for Michigan State’s Spartans men’s basketball team since 1995 and a Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame inductee, Izzo is the force behind one the most successful basketball programs in the history of college sports. AJP’s design challenge was to come up with unique and technologically cutting-edge experience that honored not only the extraordinary coach, but a long history of MSU basketball players, coaches, fans and moments.
