The anatomy of designing an NBA arena (a case study of the Kings)

The average sports fan’s first interaction with a planned new arena comes in the form of renderings. But that is so far down the path of the design process. For a new Sports Illustrated story, I worked with the preeminent NBA arena designers, AECOM, and the NBA’s Sacramento Kings to dive deeper into the process of creating a new NBA arena. We looked at everything from site selection to seating arrangements and from building materials to local input. The resulting article, I believe, gives readers a first-hand walk-through of the process involved in designing an NBA arena. Read the results on SI here.
