The symbolic heart of Saitama Prefecture, the Saitama Super Arena and Master Plan is the central element of a major mixed-use entertainment complex.
The $750 million complex is a striking visual demonstration of Japanese technology coupled with the latest in American design. A convertible domed stadium, the building is capable of transforming from a 20,000 seat NBA compliant arena to a 35,000-seat stadium.
Saitama Arena was selected as one of the world’s 50 best buildings in 2001. Dan Meis’ design was selected as the result of an international competition.
