Comments Off on Extraordinary Sci-Fi-esque spherical arena unveiled for London

Architecture firm Populous has unveiled their extraordinary designs for MSG Sphere London, a massive spherical arena set to rise on a five-acre site near Olympic Park . Envisioned as a glowing orb wrapped in digital screens, the 18,000-seat arena would host music and esport events for the Madison Square Garden Company (MSG). The MSG Sphere London appears visually identical to the renderings of the MSG arena for Las Vegas, also designed by Populous. Perhaps best known for their design of London’s Olympic Stadium , Populous has made its name in stadium designs worldwide. In the two MSG Sphere schemes, the architects push the envelope in eye-catching stadium design and technology. Digital screens wrap around the exterior while the interior will boast the “largest and highest resolution media display on Earth,” says MSG.
