I never went to any games there but the LA Sports arena will hold a place in my heart for the many raves that I went to there.



Owell. The LA Sports Arena has long served it's purpose. I'm liking the direction of LAFC's overall brand and am really looking forward to the new stadium.

I think Pesto is referring to the fact that there is no final design to consider at this time. Just conceptual suggestions nominated by various parties.

Yeah, I was wondering if I had missed something.

As for the awning/overhang I would guess they are looking for something more opaque. Guarding against rain is not a big priority but heat and sun in the eyes could very well be. But no use speculating since the real thing should be coming soon.

LOL.

I once had a shoot where the techies were so "un-techie" looking that an accounting guy and secretary posed with the screens and pointers. In one, they wanted a female in charge so one of the secretaries was pointing at the screen while the CFO was looking up admiringly at her (btw, the CFO's secretary was pissed since she was passed over for the shot, possibly due to age and looks).

With an array of stadiums and arenas already in place across Los Angeles, officials bidding for the 2024 Summer Olympics have turned their focus to temporary facilities that might be needed.

Current plans include an elevated track built over the football field at the Coliseum and a proposal to temporarily convert Figueroa Street into a miles-long promenade for pedestrians and bicyclists.

LA 2024 released more details about the bid in a meeting with reporters at the private committee's offices overlooking Westwood on Thursday.

Even with the Rams planning to build an NFL stadium in Inglewood, track and field would be held at the Coliseum, where there would not be enough room for a 400-meter track in the narrow space between the field and the stands.

Organizers could solve that problem by erecting a raised floor inside the stadium — a platform on columns that would extend outward over the first 13 or so rows of seats.

The structure could be completed in about four months and torn down by the end of September for the remainder of USC's football season.

"Our 60-meter warmup sprint track would be underneath there," Bill Hanway, who is overseeing the bid's technical aspects, said of the elevated floor. "We might be able to do some really cool things like have hydraulic lifts and have athletes rise up from underneath the platform to receive their awards."

The technology was recently used with success at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland.

Beside the Coliseum, a planned soccer stadium for the Los Angeles Football Club would house a temporary pool much like the ones that have been used for the U.S. Olympic trials in Long Beach and Omaha, Neb.

The pool would be placed close to the stands on one sideline, with temporary bleachers constructed on the opposite side, allowing for 20,000 to 25,000 seats.

"The key to offsetting the pool and using half of the existing [stands] and half new is we'll have the crowds right on top of the swimmers," said Hanway, who also serves as head of global sport for AECOM, an engineering and design firm.


With the bid's downtown cluster centered around Staples Center and Exposition Park, the committee is looking for a way to connect the two neighborhoods.

That could be done by shutting off Figueroa Street to automobile traffic for the 17 days of the competition. Food trucks, displays and technology exhibits would line the promenade.

Officials said this part of the plan is still conceptual and has yet to be negotiated with businesses along the street.

Additional temporary venues would be required for archery on Bunker Hill and various events at the Sepulveda Basin Recreation Area. A rowing venue has yet to be confirmed.

Los Angeles is competing against Paris, Rome and Budapest, Hungary, for the 2024 Games. The International Olympic Committee is scheduled to select a host in the summer of 2017.

What sounds awful? Temporary pools are nothing new and neither are artificial fields for track and field ("athletics").

A similar set up was used in Kazan for the World Championships and I believe it worked just fine.

Of course, if I were an IOC member whose sport was swimming I may prefer to vote for a city offering a permanent venue and permanent legacy. But that's by the by and off-topic for this thread. Fact is, temporary pools can work.

I agree, but if any IOC member whose sport was swimming should know, Aquatics is a fairly entrenched sport in all four bidding countries, so legacy should be far down the list of priorities when it comes to looking at which city to vote for. If any IOC member was serious when Agenda 2020 was supported unanimously less than two years ago, then temporary venues like the one proposed by LA should be viewed as efficient and cost-effective. LA shouldn't be punished for deciding not to build a massive and expensive Olympic-sized permanent indoor aquatic facility, when it is more than acceptable to utilise temporary facilities for a fraction of the price.

Sounds like an issue that most of the world is going through these days: palaces vs. pop-ups. Retail, public events, parties, entertainment, etc., are all going flexible and temporary where a few years back they would have gone monolithic and permanent.

"Permanent legacies" have involved empty stadiums growing weeds in Athens and Beijing. L.A. will mostly use existing facilities - many of which are actually legacies of the 1932 and 1984 games.
And I love the idea of beach volleyball not only actually being played on a beach, but on the beach where the sport was born.

That makes no sense. Honolulu is not bidding on the games.
