The Sacramento Kings reviewed design ideas from 12 architects in July for their new arena, but Vivek Ranadive did not see one that matched his vision.

Ranadive is aiming for the arena to become an architectural icon beyond just Sacramento.

Ranadive alludes to the Sydney Opera House of San Francisco's Transamerica Pyramid as the type of achievement he is seeking.

"When you buy a postcard of California, it's going to have our arena on it," said Ranadive.
