Ed Robson Arena

The ultra-modern, sustainable Ed Robson Arena is far more than a sports facility. Built on the campus of Colorado College, it is a state-of-the-art, multi-purpose sporting and events venue that brings together students and the City of Colorado Springs. The transparent architecture of the arena echoes elements of the surrounding buildings and mountains. A highlight of this is the light-permeated and spacious entrance area with its faceted and luminous expanded metal ceiling. Large white triangular surfaces are arranged in opposing angles, framed by narrow lighting channels that complement the dynamic character of the ceiling and make it appear almost weightless. At the same time, these lighting channels form part of the complex and technically ingenious substructure.

Dark-grey expanded metal ceilings in other areas of the arena also underline the visual lightness and transparency of this new arena that is part of the City for Champions, an initiative aimed to boost tourism and brand Colorado Springs as Olympic City USA by increasing its capacity to host regional, national and international events.
