Los Angeles NFL Stadium by MEIS Architects/Aedas Sport
This 75,000-seat stadium
is designed for a location in the City of Industry that is intended to house a NFL football team. The plans for the stadium call for nestling the seating bowl into a hillside, which would reduce the steel used in the structure by 40 percent. This is one of a number of cutting-edge sustainable features in the stadium's design.
The honorable Anthony Villaraigosa, mayor of Los Angeles, was on hand at the awards, noting that as a major metropolitan city, Los Angeles contains more LEED certified buildings than other similarly sized cities in the US. While it is hard to say where he’s getting his information, the LABC’s awards are testament to the wide variety of sustainable buildings that are popping-up around the city. Hopefully this is a trend that only continues to increase over time.
