Intuit Dome, the future home of the Los Angeles Clippers, has broken ground in Inglewood, Calif. adjacent to the recently completed SoFi Stadium. The project’s goal is to create a technologically advanced arena, entertainment venue, and outdoor plaza that will deliver a uniquely intimate and intense experience.

The project, which will hold approximately 18,000 people, is designed for optimal and intimate engagement with the community and fans. The facility will feature a visually dynamic and structurally efficient silhouette that will be defined by a steel frame with diagrid geometry, inspired by the form of a basketball net as a ball passes through it.

Intuit Dome will take advantage of the Southern California climate via an indoor-outdoor approach that will allow for a naturally ventilated entrance and upper concourse. A solar-optimized building shell will balance natural light and solar heat gain.

In addition to AECOM, the core design team includes Anderson Barker Architects, Hood Design Studio, City Design Studio, Walter P. Moore, Henderson Engineering, and Labib Funk & Associates. Intuit Dome is slated to open for the 2024-2025 NBA season.
