Since moving into Golden 1 Center, the Sacramento Kings have worked hard to make the new arena feel like home both inside and out. With a strong commitment to display art publicly, Golden 1 Center has become home to the largest contribution of public art in Sacramento history. The most renowned piece of the collection is the world’s first publicly-owned, permanently-displayed sculpture by Jeff Koons, called Coloring Book #4. To welcome the people of Sacramento to the new arena, the Sacramento Kings have paired with Downtown Commons to host “Long Lunch Fridays” on the Golden 1 Center Plaza, featuring food trucks, live music, and the occasional craft fair.


 

To extend the fan experience beyond the stadium walls, the Atlanta Braves turned to Dimensional Innovations to create a unique, iconic element. DI designed, engineered, and built a custom, LED-wrapped baseball, 21 feet in diameter, to tower over the common area directly behind the first baseline. The baseball weighs in at almost seven tons, and took roughly four months to complete from start to finish. In a partnership with NanoLumens, the baseball streams live games, concerts, advertisements, and other messages on custom screens wrapped in the center of the baseball.


 

T-Mobile Arena is steps away from the Las Vegas Strip. The surrounding neighborhood includes Toshiba Plaza and The Park, which is an immersive, outdoor destination for dining and entertainment. Toshiba Plaza is a unique outdoor space that includes three stages and can accommodate 5,000-10,000 people. The Park is home to Bliss Dance, a breathtaking, 40-foot-tall sculpture of a dancing woman, celebrating the strength of a woman who is both safe and present. Another unique feature of The Park includes heat-absorbing tulip-shaped structures. A blend of entertainment makes these spaces the pulse that combines T-Mobile Arena’s surroundings into one community.


 

The Nippert Stadium renovation project had two major goals: enhance the fan experience and strengthen the quality of the campus. This project on the University of Cincinnati’s confined urban campus raises the standard for collegiate stadium facilities. The dramatic architecture contributes to the distinctive surroundings by delivering a showcase building for the university and improving the gameday and non-gameday environment. All interior design aspects reinforced the building’s aesthetic, highlighting a large, diagonal truss system that conveys the overall scale of the building.
