Gabe Braselton

Principal, Senior Architect / Kansas City

Throughout his nearly 20-year design career, Gabe has brought a discerning eye to the design process alongside a passion for executing architectural and design services for Populous on a variety of building types, including major NHL, NBA and multi-use entertainment venues. Gabe’s experience and skill set includes all aspects of facility design from conceptual development through construction administration. He possesses deep technical knowledge specific to the design of sporting and multipurpose venues and brings a collaborative spirit to a project team. Gabe is always focused on making decisions based on what is best for the project.

Gabe played an integral role in the design and execution of some of the world’s most recognizable, award-winning arenas, including Milwaukee’s Fiserv Forum, Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena and Quebec’s Videotron Centre. Gabe’s understanding of and ability to balance permanent tenants needs with other events needs improves flexibility, serviceability, and viability in the overall entertainment marketplace. This focus results in venues being able to host a wider variety of events, bringing more entertainment options to more markets and communities, and ultimately results in venues seeing a greater return on their investment.
