Ghost of Dodger Stadium Future?

New, 3 comments

LA Times architecture critic Christopher Hawthorne heads down to Arizona to review the Dodger's HKS-designed Camelback Ranch, a 141-acre, $100 million facility with 12 practice fields, a carp-stocked pond, seats that can run upwards of $100, and $10 beers. And even though the stadium may come across as a tad ostentatious given the economy (and amid news that McCourt won't shell out for public transportation to Dodger stadium), the facility comes across as accessible and personable, according to Hawthorne, and "those qualities bode well for the $500-million architectural upgrade McCourt is planning with HKS and the Los Angeles firms Johnson Fain and Rios Clementi Hale for Chavez Ravine. There, as in Arizona, the key to success will be figuring out how to balance newfangled amenity with informal charm." Check out Camelback on Flickr. [[LA Times]
