Warriors Select Snohetta, AECOM As Architects For New S.F. Arena
The Warriors have selected AECOM and L.A.-based architect Snohetta to design their new $500M arena on the S.F. waterfront. AECOM, formerly Ellerbe Becket, designed Barclays Center and is developing upgrades to New Orleans Arena for the Hornets. Snohetta, the Warriors’ lead architect, designed two civic landmarks internationally, the Oslo Opera House in Norway and the Great Library of Alexandria in Egypt. The NBA team, under new owners Peter Guber and Joe Lacob, have committed to privately financing construction of an arena proposed for Piers 30-32 on S.F. Bay, south of the Bay Bridge, between the Ferry Building and AT&T Park.
