Norfolk Scope, Norfolk, VA

Norfolk Scope is a 12,600-seat multipurpose arena at the northern perimeter of downtown Norfolk, Virginia, designed by Italian architect/engineer Pier Luigi Nervi in conjunction with the now defunct local firm of Williams and Tazewell. Construction on Scope on Brambleton Avenue began in June 1968 and was completed in 1971 at a cost of $35 million USD. Federal funds covered $23 million of the cost. The name Scope, a contraction of "kaleidoscope," emphasizes the venue's reconfigurability, and the logo features a multi-colored, abstracted kaleidoscope image.
