From the architect. Located at the intersection of Scottsdale and McDowell Road, SkySong is a mixed-use project consisting of 1.2 million square feet of office, research and retail space, and a hotel /conference center at full build-out. In addition to the commercial space, SkySong will include multi-family residential units. Anchored by the iconic SkySong shade structure, it is built around a densely landscaped grand boulevard lined by ground-floor shops and restaurants with offices above. SkySong will serve the needs of businesses, research and technology industry and academia while building vital networks between university innovations, regional progress and the global technology industry.

FTL in collaboration with Pei Cobb Freed & Partners (Architect for the Campus Buildings) designed the sculptural tensile structure as a center piece for the overall development, providing a shaded center courtyard with 4 plazas for cafes, restaurants and social interaction. The PTFE glass fabric structure is approximately 50,000 sq ft of area and opened in May 2009.

This is slightly frightening, maybe a little bit disturbing!

WHAM,AAAAH! it's a giant crazy tensile structure, run!!!

helen · August 13, 2009

frei would be disappointed.

imagine · August 12, 2009

1980's architecture and structure form.

quinn · August 12, 2009

I wouldn't mind it if I never saw a tensile fabric structure again.

james · August 12, 2009

this is both cool and naff at the same time

A friend of mine accurately mentioned that this sure looks like Denver Intl Airport if it exploded.
