American Stadium Building News

We’ve selected what we feel are the key examples of US Stadium Buildings. We aim to include stadium buildings / projects that are either of top quality or interesting, or ideally both.

We cover completed US stadium buildings, new building designs and architecture competitions across the United States of America. The focus is on contemporary US sports buildings but information on traditional sports arena buildings in the USA is also welcome.

PETCO Park Ballpark in San Diego
The coast of California is a place of sea, sky, and amazing natural beauty. These are the traits the San Diego Padres had in mind in the late 1990s when they set out to build the city a new ballpark. Rather than reaching back into history, they challenged Populous to create a new ballpark concept – something that would revolutionize sports stadiums the way Camden Yards did decades ago.
