Super Bowl Stadium Followup


Peter Eisenman claims his U of Phoenix Stadium design was inspired by a barrel cactus. The locals don’t agree. From the <a href="http://cactusjungle.com/archives/blog/exit.php?url_id=1821&amp;entry_id=1643" title="http://www.eastvalleytribune.com/story/107404" onmouseover="window.status=’http://www.eastvalleytribune.com/story/107404′;return true;" onmouseout="window.status=”;return true;">East Valley Tribune</a>.<br /><br /><div style="margin-left: 40px;"><span style="font-style: italic;">The stadium looks like a vegetable steamer. We’re not sure why. We weren’t at that meeting. At the time, the Cardinals’ architect said the design was an homage to the barrel cactus. (Which makes sense, because many Cardinals games FEEL like you’re sticking your head in a barrel cactus.) But he was not local, and may have been frightened by kitchen appliances at an early age. Just take Loop 101 west, and pretend you’re a giant broccoli floret looking for a sauna.</span><br /></div><br />Hah!<br /><br />
