The Ford Center Arena is a multi-use indoor arena located in downtown Evansville, Indiana and is a cornerstone for continued revitalization efforts. Its sweeping, curved forms evoke the unique nature of the horseshoe bend in the Ohio River while providing an aesthetic that is of its time, reflecting its citizens' forward-thinking nature. The use of native Indiana limestone at the arena's base creates a visual grounding for the building while also respecting the materiality of Evansville's civic buildings. The focused use of glass is intended to give frequent views both out of and into the building and to
become a beacon for the city and its development.
The 278,000 square foot arena is located at the corner of Main Street and Martin Luther King Boulevard. It is the home court for the Evansville Aces men's and women's basketball teams; it also has a regulation NHL ice sheet and hockey support spaces. The multi-purpose venue accommodates shows, exhibitions, and concerts.
