Description: Hard Rock Stadium
The extensive overhaul of Miami’s largest stadium was first proposed in 2010 and then updated in 2013. The concept by 360 Architecture includes a vast roof over Sun Life Stadium, covering both the stands and main access ramps/escalators. Supported by 8 pillars, the steel trusses will create a static level surface of the roof, dominated by tall spires in the corners.
The roof alone is priced at some $100 million, while entire redevelopment cost is set to be $350-400 million. The price includes upgrade or replacement of nearly all systems and equipment at the stadium.
This includes elements as basic as seats, but also escalators, lifts, lighting and sound systems, ending with the giant screens. Instead of two, four bigger ones are to be mounted in the corners.
The concrete bowl will remain intact in almost all parts, except for first rows along the pitch, where new seats will be located. In return some sections will be dismantled in the uppermost corner sections, to make way for giant screens.
