Designed and built by CA Skateparks, the course for stop #3 of the Street League 2011 tour was held at the Arena in Glendale, Arizona. The design was heavily influence by modern Arizona architecture and the red, black, grey, tan and cream colors in the Street League Arizona graphic. Drawing from the angular line work of the letters A and Z, the decorative paving pattern was designed in harmony with the artistic elements in each section of the plaza. The design team gathered inspiration for their vision from indoor malls, entry plazas and industrial complexes to create the setting for Arena. Implementing an angular theme, the design includes floating stairs, stacked ledges and planters, cantilevered detailing and an interesting paving patterns, giving this year’s AZ design a unique style with a modern southwest flavor.
