Transportation Arena for the Public

The Transportation Arena for the Public is a center for sports diplomacy on Randall’s Island. Sited between the RFK Bridge and Hell’s Gate Bridge, the project links the bridges and acts as a central receiving station for the sports island. By expanding public transit opportunity, the Transportation Arena for the Public connects the island to the New York City subway system and the Amtrak Northeast corridor; the structure accommodates and subsumes the bridges, allowing for car drop-off and a widened train station. Building on Randall’s Island’s sports program, the architecture accommodates sports venues as an opportunity for travelers to engage with the site by making the public the heart of the building.
