E-Sports Arena Seoul



CJ LIVE CITY was planned as a multi-purpose Arena concept, established on the vision of creating a vibrant multi-purpose indoor venue. A venue capable of hosting a diverse range of entertainment, sports, and MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conference and Exhibition) events. Central to this concept is to ensure the arena design incorporates multipurpose features and flexibility so the design allows for quick affordable adaptability from one Sports/entertainment/MICE event to another. The ability to easily interchange and adapt to the arena will create further commercial opportunities through a regular and diverse content calendar.

The main goal for this Venue is to achieve optimum utilization of the space through a mix of regular quality programs. The design of the Venue should create flexibility and where possible help to create the following:

Upmost and foremost, create a compelling home for Large scale, Live Music Concerts.

Create an environment that strongly connects with the wider masterplan.

Create an Environmentally Sustainable Venue.

Embrace the character and uniqueness of this new destination.

Create spaces that allow temporary (events) and permanent programs to take place, in conjunction with one another.

The design should optimize availability and occupancy, allowing quick turnaround.

The design process should allow timely consultation with promoters on facilities and technical standards.
