INTERVIEW

RW: What stands out about
the modern stadiums?

Most of the stadiums were from the early
1990s era onward. About a quarter of
them were older, and not surprisingly,
they had the worst amenities. Fenway
Park in Boston is a marvellous classic. The
Green Monster in left field and Pesky's
Pole (the foul ball pole down the right
field line) ...it's epic. However, there are
many terrible seats in Fenway. Sitting
on the right field line, your chair actually
faces the right fielder so to see home
plate, you have to sit with your legs at an
uncomfortable 45-degree angle the entire
game. At Wrigley, there are seats where
you sit behind a column holding up the
grandstand!

ML: PNC Park in Pittsburgh is right on the
river. You see the city skyline, the Roberto
Clemente Bridge and the Allegheny River.
It's an intimate stadium and only seats
about 36,000 people, and the most amazing
thing is that the farthest seat from the field
of play is no more than 89 feet (27m) away,
closer than the distance from base to base.
They also angle the seats toward home
plate. At Comerica Park in Detroit, they did
an amazing job incorporating the Tigers
iconography into details of the building.
They have different tiger heads marking
entrances, and this huge tiger at the front
entrance that you walk under and pose
with for photos. Incorporating aspects of
the team name and logo adds to the sense
of place.

RW. What stadiums stand out for you in
terms of physical context and location?
ML: Stadiums in downtown settings were
enjoyable, where you get a feel for the city
history and urban fabric. In San Diego, the
left field line has the Western Metal building
incorporated into the stadium so they didn't
have to tear it down, and they repurposed
the structure to include the merchandise
store and a concession. The outfield opens
up into this huge play area with a whiffle ball
field and massive sand box for kids. At the
end of my trip, Pittsburgh, Detroit and San
Diego and would be my top three.

RW. Not what I would have expected...
ML: Certainly, features like the Green
Monster at Fenway, the ivy and bricks
and the people on the apartment rooftops
beyond at Wrigley, and the classic white
frieze that went around Old Yankee
Stadium, those things were all cool. None of
the new stadiums successfully incorporate
anything like that. They try, but it's never
the same, and often feels forced. I think time
and history make classic stadium features
more impactful. Baltimore really started a
trend in 1992 with Oriole Park at Camden
Yards, where teams began building more
intimate, retro-style stadiums with modern
amenities for the fans and incorporating the
surrounding context.

RW: Does anything else stand out
in terms of siting or location?
ML: There is something about taking a bus
or subway to the game: that communal,
ritualistic feeling of travelling with other
fans who are strangers, so I prefer ballparks
easily accessed via public transportation.
In Milwaukee, Miller Park isn't downtown,
but they have great shuttle buses, and it sits
in a huge parking lot because they wanted
people to be able to tailgate, which is part of
sports culture in that state. In Kansas City,
Kaufman Stadium where the Royals play
and the NFL team's stadium are located on
a big site where several Interstates intersect
because the teams have to draw from a
larger metropolitan area.
