Sprint Center Arena Moon’s Plaza

PROJECT SPECIFICATIONS/INFORMATION

Description:

The Sprint Center opened in Oct. 2007 and it is Kansas City’s home for sports, concerts, family shows, collegiate competitions, tournaments and special events. Bomanite Licensee, Musselman & Hall installed 64,000 of concrete hardscapes during the construction of the arena. A small portion of their work involved The Moon’s Plaza. The project designer, Chris Doyle, created The Moons as the Percent-for-Art component of the Sprint Arena, in Kansas City, Missouri. In front of the huge glass arena, Mr. Doyle created a plaza with three elliptical gardens, each with a water component.  Hanging above each of the gardens is a moon, a circular LED video screen that shows individuals flying across the screen simulating orbiting the arena. Musselman & Hall, brought the surface to life resembling rock and sand textures with Bomanite’s Imprint and Exposed Aggregate Systems. A custom imprint pattern of random rocks was designed to achieve a natural stone look once stamped and colored with Bomanite Black Color Hardener. Along with the imprinted surface Bomanite Sandscape Texture integrally colored in white was woven through the design to provide contrast, movement and flow to the surroundings.
