2004 Manufacturing Excellence Award Winner
The palette of rich materials, dynamic set of forms and the details makes this entry the most sophisticated project in the competition. The mammoth form of a football stadium is broken down by the creative use of precast, brick and steel with a design appropriately scaled and not overly repetitious like most stadiums. The large exposed concrete panels with brick inset into the panels presented technical challenges while creating a design that is interesting and pleasing. In order to fully appreciate this project, the jury suggested they be provided with a site visit while the stadium is in use (preferably in September!).
