The new Wayne State University Arena, located in Detroit, will accommodate three basketball programs—men’s, women’s and NBA G-League—as well as space for a

variety of university and community events. The design curates the fan arrival experience from the exterior approach through to the entry at concourse level, and provides expansive views down into the bowl, similar to larger arena experiences.

The pre-fabricated building exterior is customized with contextual details from surrounding neighborhoods, such as a rich brick facade, a large, vertical expression and classic central profile, and grid and window patterning.
