Picture this, it’s the end of the week, the Sunday before you go back to business-as-usual. “We Will Rock You” by Queen plays as the stadium fills with a triumphant Boom-boom-clap! Boom-boom-clap! And the person next to you sports a Philadelphia Eagles hat almost resembling the mascot. Down on the field, massed bands perform the anthem alongside country music star, Chris Stapleton, and you know (especially the person next to you) that it’s Game-time.
Super Bowl XLVII is fast approaching, and the excitement is rapidly growing across the nation among teams and fans. This will be the fourth time the Super Bowl has been hosted in Phoenix (1996, 2007 and 2015 were the previous years), and the city is abuzz with anticipation. The Philadelphia Eagles and Kansas City Chiefs will face off at the award-winning State Farm Stadium in Glendale. The Cincinnati Bengals had the chance to make their second consecutive Super Bowl, but in an unfortunate tragic twist of events they lost to the Kansas City Chiefs 23-20.
State Farm Stadium
State Farm Stadium is home to the Arizona Cardinals Football Club (NFL), the annual Fiesta Bowl, international soccer matches, motorsports, as well numerous other sporting, trade and consumer events and activities. The stadium was designed by renowned New York architect Peter Eisenman at an estimated cost of about $455 million. Completed in August 2006, it has both a retractable playing field and a retractable roof, the first of its kind in North America, to accommodate capacities of 63,000 people, with the flexibility to be expanded for “mega-events” to fit as many as 73,000.
At Optima we strive to enhance the quality of community and experiences through exceptional design, and the State Farm Stadium serves as a breathtaking reminder of the sophisticated engineering, technology, and design we implement into our own process.
