The Detroit chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA Detroit) has announced ROSSETTI as the winner of the Technology in Architectural Practice (TAP) category for the Arthur Ashe Stadium Retractable Roof. TAP tracks the computer technology that weaves in and out of the life of the building, including the design, construction, and management.
Coming back from a record-breaking U.S. Open, President and Chief Architect of Serious Fun, Matt Rossetti speaks about the tennis center's new palette of materials, smart master-planning, and how the new retractable roof works during rain or shine.
Danny Zausner is in the fifth set of the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center transformation. He is the chief operating officer and managing director of the tennis center and the man behind the plan. That five-year plan, announced in 2013, begun in 2014, scheduled to conclude in 2018, is a $600-million makeover that includes the roof over Ashe Stadium, the new Grandstand, a completely rebuilt south campus, the new Court 17, completely rebuilt practice courts and adjacent field courts. Plus new food offerings, entertainment, hospitality options, the whole entertainment package.
