Sports buildings are the “cathedrals” of our age: they represent the civic values, economic success, memories, and aspirations of a city. As civic gathering places — often partially financed with public funds — they must be designed with sensitivity to the surrounding community. The next generation of high-performance sports buildings must also yield greater economic return through multipurpose use and other alternate sources of revenue. Through design excellence and long-term vision, they can engage the public to create healthier, more engaged communities.
