PPG Paints Arena

Pittsburgh, PA

HOK Sport + Venue + Event

I was a team member for the new arena for the Pittsburgh Penguins from concept design through 70% construction documentation while I was employed at HOK Sport + Venue + Event. The 18,000 seat, 600,000 square foot arena featured a glass circulation spine that faced downtown Pittsburgh. The glass feature wall gave those passing by a view into the arena in evenings and proved users a view of downtown during the day. State of the art technologies throughout the arena¬†focused on the fan experience, and the Penguins ownership was determined to finish¬†the players’ facilities with amenities that were the niced in the National Hockey League.
