Sport and Spectacle: Renovating Saarinen’s Ingalls Hockey Rink

Take in the action and the history during this exclusive Docomomo US tour and afternoon hockey game at Eero Saarinen's Ingalls Hockey Rink on Saturday, February 21, 2015.

Eero Saarinen’s David S. Ingalls Hockey Rink on the Yale University campus “is deliberately not an ordinary building.” Visually compelling in its sculptural forms, the structure is composed of a huge 300-foot parabolic arch held in place by a complex tension grid of cables. As the building neared its 50th anniversary, Yale commissioned Kevin Roche John Dinkeloo and Associates to direct the refurbishment, updates and building expansion to address the needs of the current and future Yale Hockey Program while preserving this Architectural Landmark.
