Doesn't look like an NHL size rink to me.

If you assume there is also 2 concessions on the other side, and 1 each at the ends… there isn't enough concessions.

Looks like a rink that Coyotes fans could sell out.

sounds like the article says around 20,000

Looks like a shot at a unique design that missed the mark on several levels. Granted this is (hopefully) a very early iteration, but not a great start. And I hate the idea of the United Center model, doing nothing really well and making for mediocre ice conditions at best.

Is this guy even a hockey fan?

Does he have a location in mind that could allow for all these ideas to function properly?

I'm having trouble getting into an idea where the designer doesn't actually know what it is like to be in an NHL arena other than input from fans.

For starters, the suites. Scouts, GMs, announcers, and other big spenders want to see all the action evenly. It is incredibly hard to know exactly what is going on at one end of the ice if you are opposite the rink. That's why center ice seats are the best. They give an overall better view than the end seats.

Also the retractable roof seems like a bad idea unless the energy savings (most games occur during night anyway and the rink has to be cool which would not be helped by a large amount of sunlight) outweigh the cost of building the roof and cooling the rink.

This point of a glass ceiling in a rink where 90-95% of night games are played is...?

Also there is no way that is a 20,000 seat arena. No chance in hell.

You wouldnt be able to see out of it in the day anyway. All of Detroits banners would be blocking the view.

By looking at it, I figured 14,000 max for capacity. There is hardly any end seating; you would need 80 rows along the side boards to get to 20,000. And then with his 48 inch wide rows, the balcony seating would be horrendous; way too far from the ice. I posted a few new interior shots of my New Olympia Stadium prototype that you can compare to. They aren't as clean or refined, but I think they convey a look closer to what people would actually want. You can see them here

assuming Illitch brings all the banners this time :ph34r:

This might be getting a little heated. Just know I don't hate any of you guys.

 

That doesn't mean that I respect ideas & opinions. Some ideas & opinions are ridiculous.

 

In fact, if you confront my ideas & opinions, that will lead to a discussion. (We're on a discussion board after all. Don't forget that!)

Yeah, its Google Sketchup, and its the first building I ever made on it, so it isn't perfect. But I think its not bad for my first try.
