Dallas-based HKS Architects is the firm responsible for the design and construction of the 3.1 million square foot venue. To enable events to be hosted all year round, a 19-acre ETFE plastic canopy shaped like a sail will top the complex.
Influenced by the Californian climate and culture, the edges of the building will remain open-air, allowing natural air flow and encourage all the public spaces to take advantage of the indoor/outdoor experience. The dynamic roof will inherently express and integrate itself as a beacon into the district.
The stadium will accommodate a total capacity exceeding 100,000 patrons along with standing-room-only locations. The proposed 80,000 seater stadium will be vast enough to host major events such as collegiate games, awards shows and super bowl, but also smaller-scale events including high school football games, soccer matches and motosports.
Already given the go-ahead, the Inglewood NFL stadium will be categorised as one of the biggest and most expensive American football complexes to be constructed.
