With the Super Bowl taking place in our own backyard, we felt it was apropos to take a look at what stadia represent and discuss how stadia design can add value to city’s identity. “[Stadia] really are secular cathedrals,” said Benjamin Flowers, professor in the Georgia Tech School of Architecture, recently appointed associate vice provost for advocacy and conflict resolution, and our very own stadia expert. Flowers’ newest book, Beautiful Moves: Designing Stadia, takes a deep dive into the design of stadia, calling it “an architectural type as captivating as the play occurring on the pitch.”
