Arizona Ballpark Study

Asked to design a state-of-the-art ballpark in Arizona’s arid desert climate, MEIS drew on local and traditional inspiration while melding technological and sustainable practices. The venue is designed to contain approximately 38,000 seats, 40 luxury suites, 4,000 club/premium seats and a retractable roof.

Influenced by Arizona’s landscape, MEIS designed the ballpark to be integrated into the hillside. Having the bowl nestled into the rocky terrain gives the ballpark a sense of belonging, helps save on structural costs and allows for fan seating to be located against the cliff, providing spectators with unparalleled views of the surrounding landscape. Both radial and linear retractable roof options were studied, with the roof serving a dual role of providing comfort from Arizona’s extreme outside temperatures, and when opened, shading the adjacent 365-day, mixed-use climate-controlled plazas.
