The venue represents an innovative culmination of sports, entertainment and high design. The architecture provides fans with an unprecedented immersion into the world of sports. — Mark Williams, HKS Sports/Entertainment
The stadium features two monumental arches, soaring 292 feet above the playing field, which support a retractable roof. As the longest single span roof structure in the world, each boxed arch weighs 3,000 tons each, and span 1,225 feet in length. One of the compelling architectural features of the stadium design is the canted glass exterior wall. The 86-foot-high glass curtain wall surface slopes at a 14-degree angle to create a luminescent glow, day or night. A fritted glass system transitions up the elevation to create dynamic, ever-changing aesthetic depending on the time of day. At night, a series of internal lights gently wash the glass wall to create a glow across the facade.
