The Stadium is an unprecedented and comprehensive look at the intersections between architecture, urban design, sports and sports culture -- from histories of the changing social function and character of sport, to the changing field of stadiumMoreThe Stadium is an unprecedented and comprehensive look at the intersections between architecture, urban design, sports and sports culture -- from histories of the changing social function and character of sport, to the changing field of stadium architecture. A special feature is a series of city chapters examining how individual cities deal with their sports complexes and how they use them as a springboard for urban redevelopment. The Stadium also treats a number of topical themes such as the influence of sports-fan hooliganism on the design of a stadium and its surroundings, developments in areas of comfort, infrastructure, and commerce, advances on the technical front, and the working methods of architects specializing in the building of stadiums. In addition to designs by famous architects like Hitoshi Abe, Morphosis, Hani Rashid, and others, The Stadium also features descriptions, photographic documentation, and drawings of over 40 legendary stadiums, including the Colosseum in Rome, Leninstadium, the Moscow Stadium, Nagano Olympic Stadium, Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, Soldiers Field in Chicago, Wembley Stadium in London, Arena Amsterdam, the Toronto Sky Dome, and many others.
