Moody Center officially opened on The University of Texas campus in April with concerts by John Mayer, George Strait and Willie Nelson. The 530,000 square foot venue is also home to the Texas Longhorns Women’s and Men’s basketball teams, with a seating capacity of 10,000-15,000.
Flyhouse began consulting with the project’s design team in early 2019, working to ensure that the arena’s initial concepts were possible. Later, Flyhouse was awarded three different specification sections for Moody Center. Our work began on site in winter 2021.
This unique panel system is made up of a series of seven rigid fabric covered panels and four roman shade style curtains. A total of 11 different motorized axes, each a different size and weight, are controlled within the overall system. It also includes a series of fixed panels mounted in the ceiling to give a finished appearance when the panels are in the upper position. In addition, a series of flipper panels are mounted to the rigid fabric panels that flip open to close-off the upper bowl masking when the system is brought down to hide the seating.
Big projects mean even bigger solutions. That's how we fly!
