Description: San Diego Stadium
Commissioned by San Diego Chargers, this concept of a new NFL stadium envisions locating this large building in downtown, near the baseball Petco Park. It would occupy vast and underused parking sites currently occupying two blocks.
Full name of the complex is the Sand Diego Stadium and Convention Center, because these two uses are to be conjoined, in a way even mixed. Structurally they would be separate (convention center in the west and stadium – east), able to hold events independently without disruptions to one-another.
But at the same time the buildings could aid each other. As an example, the west end of the stadium is open towards the convention center’s roof, which would comprise a semi-public plaza with viewing deck. Also, with the stadium’s retractable roof, it could be used as exposition space and convention halls might serve as secondary venues.
The stadium seating would have permanent roof throughout the year and the retractable part could make it a dome. Western open end, from where fans may spill from the stadium onto the viewing deck, might be used for temporary expansion, should San Diego hold the Super Bowl or other large events.
California: Trump won, Chargers stadium lost
There was more than one upset during Tuesday’s election. In California the $1.8-billion NFL stadium for Chargers was also shut down by voters.
California: San Diego to choose between more than Clinton and Trump
On November 8 Americans will choose the next president. In San Diego citizens will also decide whether to pump over $1 billion into a new stadium or not.
New design: The Chargers saga continues
It’s already the fifth concept for San Diego Chargers in just a year! Will they stay in San Diego or move to Los Angeles? This vision’s fate may give the answer.
