On the latest edition of the Beyond the Baseline Podcast, Matt Rossetti discusses the overall design process and vision for the new, Louis Armstrong Stadium, which will feature a retractable roof, seating for about 41,000 spectators, a special natural ventilation system and more. Rossetti also discusses the noise issue that came up during the first year of the Arthur Ashe roof and how he sought out feedback from top players such as Venus and Serena Williams to make sure the environment was suitable for the players on court.
Nestled in the Sierra Estrella Mountains outside Phoenix lies ISM Raceway, a hotbed for racing enthusiasts. Over the past 50 years, there have been several additions to this famous raceway, resulting in a unique but slightly askew venue. When ISM first approached ROSSETTI in 2009, it was for design solutions that would transform it into a world-class raceway.
Nosebleeds no more, said Matt Rossetti, architect of a new “inverted bowl” design he said can reimagine the way arena construction, siting and seating all occurs. After spending seven years on the design process, walking through construction and engineering feasibility and multiple design iterations, Rossetti’s eponymous firm unveiled the inverted bowl design this week. “It is going to be incredible for everything,” he said. “This thing is going to be so frickin’ cool.”
