master plan and arena design PRESENT a BOLD VISION for calgary
The entertainment district master plan integrates a new NHL arena and event center into the Victoria Park area of the city. The event center will anchor the development and catalyze the site for a mix of uses. The concept features a porous and transparent arena at street level, designed to integrate into the community.
To capture the intensity of hockey and provide fans with an entirely new experience, the city considered ROSSETTI’s Inverted Bowl as an option for the arena design. Featuring an innovative deconstructed upper bowl, it creates an intimate experience for fans and players, as well as a significant home ice advantage. The design also is designed to create new social experiences and increased mobility for fans.
