Norfolk Scope Arena
The Scope arena was designed by Italian architect/engineer Pier Luigi Nervi in conjunction with the (now defunct) local firm of Williams and Tazewell, which designed the entire complex. Nervi's design for the arena's reinforced concrete dome evolved from the Palazzetto dello Sport now known as the PalaLottomatica, which was built for the 1960 Summer Olympics in Rome.
