ROSSETTI Arthur Ashe Stadium Retractable Roof

The retractable roof that was built over and around Arthur Ashe Stadium at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Queens, New York was a technological design challenge in numerous ways. Overcoming those challenges with a structure that was both respectful of the existing architecture and iconic in its own right, befitting one of the largest annual sporting events in the world, was a primary objective for the design team. Another goal was to create an environment that retains the feeling of playing outdoors even when the roof is closed.
