Super Stadium

Super StadiumIt's not just the cool steel-ribbon gift wrapping that makes the new Arizona Cardinals stadium radically different; it's everything, from the Starchitect design by Peter Eisenman, to North America's first slide-out tray field, to the pie-slice construction method, engineered to keep costs to a trim $350 million.

The NFL is betting that the Cardinals' new home will help re-brand the woeful Cards as a winner, and kick-start a new era in sports stadia - away from the nostalgic feel of baseball parks, and onward into the future.

The showcase stadium hosted the Super Bowl in 2008, and become a new icon for Phoenix, Ariz., and football fans worldwide.

There's enough done on site to see the finished product through the skeleton, and enough left to do that there's plenty of extreme action at the stadium every day.

    @esmuziq Gay? Really. Go back to the part where he is dancing in the bar. What is he looking at? I'll give you a hint: It's not her face. He's just a city boy.

    All you guys commenting that this guy is gay, how would you know? You all experts on homos? /=)

  9. aaron shaw

    I don't care if he's gay or not, but WHY the hell get someone afraid of heights to host an engineering show? WTF, what a loser.

    I'm an architect and neither this guy's reaction to heights or gay quotient seem out of the ordinary to me. It's a long way from the drafting table/ CADD station to that extension ladder to the roof. And that urban metrosexual thing he had going on didn't compare well to the ironworkers.

    I liked the concept and 'll be looking for more episodes.
