Here is a look at the initial designs submitted to AEG for its downtown NFL stadium--these are the images of the three firms that were chosen today (a total of nine firms submitted firms). The three firms that are finalists are: Gensler, HKS, HNTB. Notably, HKS did the Cowboys Stadium. We're at LA Live for a press conference at this very minute. There are about 40 people at the press conference--everyone seems curious and intrigued. Still, a veteran journalist just told us that given how many times a stadium, and bringing back football to LA, has been talked about in past years, this event "feels like groundhog day." But maybe this will be the time a stadium actually happens? UPDATE: AEG has launched a web site for this thing. UPDATE 2: "These renderings will change," says Timothy Romani, President and CEO of Icon, adding that these concepts were "developed in a vacuum." The process was to "test creativity," he says. UPDATE 3: We're going blind, Romani said the quote about the renderings; not AEG's Ted Tanner.
