Few construction projects manage to generate as much intrigue and excitement as stadium builds. These awe-inspiring structures have continually pushed the boundaries of design to meet increasingly ambitious demands. Whether it’s boosting capacity, improving fan experience, adopting radically different styles or taking more versatile approaches, stadium planners have been setting new standards for decades.
