Trying to be unbiased, i'd say currently Qwest Field. In the near future i'd say it'll be Wembley stadium though

Qwest Field is an extremely well designed stadium in my opinion, and does not get the credit it deserves here in europe. Having said that, why would we Europeans really care about a stadium that means nothing to us in a sport that also means nothing to us? Well I still appreciate it.

Well first of all, it's just a matter of opinion so that need to get out more comment wasn't needed. Second , I've been to Reliant, Lincoln Financial Field, FedEx field, and Invesco. Reliant, IMO, is better than all of them. And no, I'm not a Texans fan. It looks good inside and out.

Best NBA/NHL Arenas:
Conseco Fieldhouse, Indianapolis (Great Retro Design)
Phillips Arena, Atlanta (great arena, bad teams and fans though)
Palace of Auburn Hills (the design that started the new arena revolution, plus its really loud)
All of the N.A. arena's are pretty ho-hum these days I would say. Conseco is pretty cool and AA is very nice on the outside. The Palace A.H. is I was not impressed with when I went. Not bad, but unspectacular.



Quote:
Best MLB Stadiums
Wrigley Field, Chicago and Fenway Park, Boston (Classic Old Parks, what more could you ask for)
PNC Park, Pittsburgh (Best View in Baseball)
AT&T Park, San Francisco (Best of the new MLB Stadiums)
Very likely my list as well. Four that stand out among many very good parks that MLB has now days.


Quote:
NFL Stadiums
Lambeau Field, Green Bay (no explanation needed)
Raymond James, Tampa (Probably the most fan friendly stadium in the league)
Ford Field, Detroit (Easily the best dome, period. Too bad the Lions suck)
Not bad choices (R.James is a bit ho-hum to me). I would chose Reliant, Qwest, and Solider. The new Indy and Arizone stadiusm look like they will be good as well. Lots of new stadiums that could be chosen.

Quote:
Most Overated
Yankee Stadium, New York (Plenty of history of course, still great atmosphere, and a great team. But frankly since the 1970s renovation the stadium just isnt the same. Put it anywhere else, and its a mediocre stadium at best)
Totally agree.

Quote:
Reliant Stadium, Houston (Built to look good from the air, and not from your seat. Sure the pics are cool enough to trick some foolish people who dont know any better, but if you think this is one of the great NFL stadiums your really need to get out more)
At least from photos the inside looks real nice. There is something about the outside I agree I don't care for all that much.

Quote:
Staples Center, LA (Its in LA and has the Lakers, hence the hype. But truthfully the sightlines arent that great and the upper deck is so far from the action you might as well be in Anaheim.)
Totally agree. Many in L.A. act as if the it the new arena by which all news ones are measured but I just don't see it. Inside the upper decks look too seperated from the floor by multi-levels of skyboxes. The outside has some nice aspects but also looks a but meh.

The new New Jersey arena does look like it has the chance to be spectacular and break from the ho-hum manner of very high quality but largely non-charismatic arenas of the last decade.

Hmm, certainly not recently.

Athens, No that sucked.

Sydney, Not great.

Atlanta, Worst of the lot.

Though the MCG is the '56 olympic stadium, so maybe there is an bit of truth in what you said, but definatly not "always".

I'm pretty sure HOK designed them both.

Its probably sacrilige here, but I like Paul Brown better. Definitely more daring. It makes incredible use of its plazas and walkways(something that open ended football stadiums take great advantage of) in a unique way. The other football stadium that does it as well is Qwest. That soaring escalator is especially cool as are the 'reaching' replay boards that seem to soar towards the top of the opposite stand. Also like Qwest, its basic shaped doesn't just settle for being another saddle stadium. Instead it creates the shape of two interlocking loops. I think this is the difference between trying to create unique window dressing on the same concept vs something truly different. It the same story of Qwest Field. Too much complaining about the lack of uniform stands and not enough attention paid to how the stadium connects and disconnects from itself and the way its gaps are filled and the infusion of nature. Its genious I think. True outside the box thinking. Definitely falls in the underrated category.

I'd give a shout out to these two as well.

I am sure that this Qwest stadium is in the USA somewhere. But I am also sure that this guy (ringed in red) is wearing a Bafan Bafana (South African Soccer Team) Jersey from the 98 world cup!

But Paul Brown Stadium was designed by NBBJ.

Are you ******* kidding me it looks like Wembley is twice the size of Paul Browns. Plus it's still only 70% complete and it's costing over 1 Billion US Dollars to make so how can it be a poor man's PBS?
