Madison Square Garden

This facility is a circular building 425 feet in diameter with a structural steel frame and an exterior wall of precast concrete panels and covers 900,000 SF. The roof structure incorporates tension and compression rings with suspended steel cable to eliminate all interior columns, giving each 22,000 seats in the main area an unobstructed view. At the time of construction, it was the largest clear-span enclosed space in the country. In addition to the main arena, the Madison Square Garden complex also includes a smaller, 5,000-seat auditorium, a 500-seat cinema, the Madison Square Garden Hall of Fame, a Library of Sports, a 48-lane bowling alley and extensive communication facilities.
