        Stadium drawings

        This one is one of my favorites. I don't know why I never finished it. Inspired of course by the Polo Grounds.

          This is another one of my favorites. I actually made a scale model of this design, although the model had a curved grandstand behind home plate, instead of this design's angular grandstand.

          Maybe I'll post a photo or two of the model later...

              Scale Model

              This is the model I did based on the design above, again, with the rounded grandstand. I built my models using "real" construction technology. Not rocket sceince, just cardboard cantilever sections to support the decks. As you can see, the entire upper deck and press level are supended over the lower bowl using cantilevers.

                Here's another model stadium - this one a triple-deck design, again, using cantilever construction.

                      Hmmm...30-40 hours of painstaking, detailed labor...$25...

                      That works out to... 68 cents an hour...how could I refuse.:noidea

                      $25 wouldn't even pay for half of the materials needed, never mind a weeks labor.

                              Nice designs, Elvis! You have great ideas, and I should say that I'd pick you over HOK to build a baseball stadium, because HOK has a huge grudge against double decked stadiums like Tiger Stadium, and HOK makes ballparks look too bland, stale, and too similar to other ballparks made by them. Your ideas are more refreshing. :gt (Go Elvis!)

                              I seem to like the six-corner ballpark and the Polo Grounds inspiration ballpark, they look nice. Again, way more original than what HOK would think up of.

                              My Top 4 funniest BBF posts ever:

                              1) "plZ dOn;t' pOsT LikE tHIs n e mOr!"

                              2) "The teams play 1962 games in 180 days."

                              3) "Stadiums don't move silly, people do."

                              4) "Once again you quibble, because it is I who speaks."

                              5) Almost anything RuthMayBond says...
