Sometimes life as a young architect, dad of one – soon to be two – girls, takes over and life as a stadium blogger takes a back seat. Now is one of those times. But don’t worry, we are putting together a series on the fascinating multi-purpose baseball / football stadiums of the 1960s-70s. These are the buildings I grew up in and so many American sport fans consider their sporting homes. This oft-maligned era in stadium design was actually a hotbed of some very creative ideas, inspiring thought about how we watch, build and manage sport facilities in America. So stay tuned for more from Stadiafile – until then, go see a game!
