The American Institute of Architects has announced that Rossetti is the winner of the Technology in Architectural Practice (TAP) category for the retractable roof at the Arthur Ashe Stadium. Rossetti’s design delivered a technological improvement to the stadium while respecting the existing architectural context of the home of the US Open.
“The great thing the new operable roof did was enhance the visceral stature of Ashe. It feels much more impressive as a building,” said Matt Rossetti. The USTA’s brief to Rossetti called for the design of an elegant structure, and the project’s skin is a lightweight, durable, Teflon-coated membrane that allows outdoor quality of daylight transmission while blocking 90% of solar radiation.
