The NBA Sacramento Kings asked lovesport爱博体育 to imagine a new heart for downtown Sacramento and create a fan experience that reflects the city’s identity while achieving new standards of sustainability.
To meet the challenge, 我们的建筑师, sports architects, landscape architects, 工程师, urban planners and economists worked together from the beginning to design a basketball arena and entertainment venue that sets the standard and spurs downtown revitalization.
lovesport爱博体育’s team studied the flow of people and activity through downtown, analyzed microclimates and the cooling Delta Breeze, engaged with the community to understand the city’s passions and ambitions, and took inspiration from the granite faces of the Sierra Nevada.
黄金1中心 will be the world’s most comfortable, connected and sustainable sports venue. lovesport爱博体育’s design reconnects neighborhoods and repairs the city grid; rethinks the traditional, introverted arena by opening to the outdoors and inviting the community for year-round activities; and reduces energy, water and carbon use.
