This is a rather complex, very detailed model of a multi-purpose arena. Its intended purpose is a basketball venue for my University of Illinois Fighting Illini, but it can be reconfigured to support hockey (click the 'hockey' tab) and other large events. The arena contains about 27,000 total seats for basketball, which includes 32 glassed-in suites, 460 open box seats, about 2000 student seats for the Orange Krush, and press/VIP seating around the floor on three sides. There is a main 'jumbotron' scoreboard, ribbon boards, and another small scoreboard on the floor opposite the scorers' bench. The court* and arena are of my own design except for the baskets, some chairs/furniture, and the trees surrounding the outside of the arena. The exterior is designed similarly to U of I's Memorial Stadium, which is across the street from this arena. (Designed to fit on the lot where the current arena, State Farm Center, lays on the University campus)
Ratings and reviews are welcome and encouraged! I'm sure the model isn't perfect, and the more feedback I get from you guys, the better I can be on future projects!
*My court design pays homage to our state's Native American heritage and our banned but beloved symbol, Chief Illiniwek. We, as Fighting Illini Nation, will never forget you.
