The Key Arena was built for the 1962 Worlds Fair and designed by architect, Paul Thiry. The building was remodeled in 1994. It was one of the first public give-a-ways to professional sports teams.

The Official Guide Book to the Seattle World's Fair describes the Coliseum: "In the shape of a hyperbolic paraboloid, it has no interior roof supports. Four massive reinforced concrete abutments support the building's roof, which is 110 feet or 11 stories high. The aluminum-paneled roof is supported by steel compression trusses and nearly six miles of steel tension cables
