Equestrian Architectural Design

The beauty, grace and power of a horse, along with the electric atmosphere of a race or show venue, draws people together. But it’s the venue itself that is the container for all extraordinary moments.

Populous is a global design leader specializing in creating equestrian venues that draw people and communities together for unforgettable experiences.

From the world’s most exclusive private farms and show venues to the world’s most recognized events such as the Olympics and the Breeders’ Cup World Championships, Populous enthusiastically embraces this expertise we uniquely claim – drawing people together around horses, athletes, events, places, commerce, and the industry they wholeheartedly embrace and adore.

Fairgrounds Architectural Design

Fairgrounds have historically served as the social, cultural and entertainment centers of the communities they serve. At Populous, we believe they should continue to be that way. We support the year-round use of fairground facilities through the design of multi-purpose event centers, arenas and exhibition halls.
