A concept for an integrated resort with a central arena capable of hosting sporting events such as ice hockey and basketball as well as music concerts.

This concept explores wrapping the hotel volume around the arena and giving key rooms sky-boxes with a bird’s eye views of the arena and action below. The three hotels towers are carved from a singular ribbon that bends and arches to form the exterior envelope. This lends a feeling of fluidity and helps fragment the scale of the 4,000-key hotel.
