New artists renderings, which are subject to change, illustrate the extensive retrofit of the structure, which will feature a unique retractable ceiling concept to enhance acoustics and create a more intimate atmosphere for fans and concert-goers. A ring-like structure will hover above the seating bowl, with automated, movable panels that can transform the building and optimize the reverberation time according to the type of event. When not in use, panels can be parked out of sight to allow unobstructed views of the spherical building.

HOK is the design architect, C.F. Moller Architects is the associate architect and sbp is the structural engineer and design lead for the retractable roof. Ramboll is the MEP engineer, Efterklang is the acoustical engineer, Light Bureau is the lighting designer, AFRY is overseeing cost management and Movement Strategies is leading crowd dynamics.
