“Ladies and Gentleman, Welcome to the Big Toaster Oven..”SALINE, MICHIGAN I never really questioned why the first batch of stadium renovation drawings only included the outside of the new structure. Thankfully many in the public did, and this week Bill Martin released artist renderings of what the inside of the Big House in 2008. You can view all the photos here. I guess I expected the outside of the building to translate to how the inside would look, that is, with a lot of brick. There is no brick.
I understand that you probably need lighter materials in that section of the building, and you want to optimize the viewing space, but did the inside need to look like it was glued onto the outer structure of the building? Was this inspired by Bill Martin’s toaster oven? Has anyone seen the Soldier Field renovation? The adherence to tradition, etc., that is upheld on the outside just wasn’t brought to the inside. Makes me wonder if they intentionally didn’t release the inside pics until the public demanded it. One other concern, how’s that glare of the setting sun going to feel for the people on the west side of the stadium (facing the East glass box?).
