Avaya Stadium – design description
Design done by 360 Architecture is distinctive mostly for its simplicity and... price. It's simply among the cheapest football stadiums done in USA, when compared to other venues of that size (even 3 times cheaper).
Despite this it has its key features others miss – U-shaped stands with full cover are to receive at least 12 skyboxes which will actually be located near ground level. This allows for more cost-saving and is a rare feature at the same time, promising corporate clients being closer to the action than in other stadia.
