Snøhetta has released an updated, more "slimmed-down" version of the Golden State Warriors’ Stadium, which is scheduled to debut on a preeminent San Francisco waterfront site for the 2017-18 NBA basketball season. Located on Piers 30-32, just walking distance from the downtown Financial District and easily accessed by a variety of public transportation, the revised design has shaved off over 30,000 square feet of the venue's total square footage and increased public open space to nearly 8 acres, 60 percent of the 13 acre site. 

The 695,000 square foot arena plans to please the masses by replacing the existing, "crumbling" pier with a network of open parks and plazas, complete with stunning Bay Bridge views. Not only will the 125-foot, disk-shaped stadium cater to Warriors’ needs, but it will also provide 90,000 square feet of retail space and a state-of-the-art events pavilion.

"From the beginning, we've said this arena will be world-class, incorporating the best in design, technology and sustainability," said Peter Guber, Co-Executive Chairman of the Warriors. "Snøhetta and AECOM have done a masterful job designing an arena and public space that will serve as the model for a 21st century digital sports and entertainment center."

“This new updated design lives up to the importance of this incredible waterfront site and fuses together the vision of the Golden State Warriors with the landscape of the bay and the input we’ve heard over the past several months from neighbors, community leaders and regulatory agencies,” said Craig Dykers, Architect and Founding Partner of Snøhetta. “Each design we’ve introduced has built on previous versions to create a place that provides for everyone: fans, pedestrians, bicyclists, tourists, local residents and the diverse community of San Francisco.”

Not sure this design is all that great, but whatever virtue it enjoys will be slowly destroyed by AECOM in the name of technical resolution and documentation.

i want to know more about urban design and LRT as catalyst of citys economic generating means and its design principles and how to design it

gustavo · May 08, 2013

This is a phantastic design. wonderfully crafted and conceived the notion of contextual dialogue and juxtapositional expression in itself and of it. This is what great architcture should look like and I am glad that SOM and AEocom can be able to collaboratively work together, in concert so-to-speak, and come up with such a peotic yet muscular schemse and such because you are realy can experience the flow and smell of urbanity as a great piece of architecture.

Never thought I'd hear someone mix up Snohetta and SOM, talk about worlds apart.

Scott Smith · February 03, 2014 02:15 AM

AECOM is going to do the construction documents for it, they had nothing to do with the design.

Snohetta not SOM

Where are the renderings of the inside? That's where the architecture really is!
