New York-based architecture firm HOK has bought competitor 360 Architecture, which specialises in the design of sports stadiums and mixed-use entertainment districts.

Kansas City-based 360 has carried out most of its work in the US, designing new stadiums for the NFL's Atlanta Falcons and renovating the Miami Dolphins' Sun Life stadium. 

It has also worked in the Middle East, though, creating the 65,000-seat Basrah Sports City complex.

HOK has an office in Dubai and is the masterplanner for the Expo 2020 site.

HOK's president, Bill Helmuth, said: "360 Architecture is a progressive design firm that has helped lead the transformation of sports architecture."
