DBRDS in today’s ‘The Architect’s Newspaper’

Following a phone call last week from The Architect’s Newspaper‘s West Coast Editor Sam Lubell, DBRDS was featured in today’s edition having been included in an article about the cities across California all reviewing new stadium proposals.

The article while touching on the political situation of each proposal location, tries to focus more on the design as Sam specifically reached out to all the designers involved in these projects. Starting with Genslers proposal for the new Farmer’s Field in Los AngelesPopulous‘ bowl shaped design for the City of Industry, DBRDS’ collaboration with McCullough Landscape Architecture in East Village San Diego, HNTB’s proposal for the 49er’s in Santa Clara, a proposal by the San Francisco’s Office of Economic & Workforce Development & finally a proposal in Oakland by JRDV.

You can read the full article here, have a look & let us know how you think our design compares with the others across California.

  1. I like your use of the available land and the round stadium idea. This would also be a good soccer stadium I think. If the owner wants a retractable roof, I wonder if you could design one, again reflecting the logo, that would cover the seats while leaving the field exposed. (Some of us “old timers” really LIKE the idea of playing football in the natural elements! San Diego seldom has thunderstorms, so I don’t see why the entire stadium needs to be covered. OTOH, I think I heard that the NFL will only have The Super Bowl in a covered stadium.) I’m very proud of you guys for reaching out to the city!
