The Football Stadium at Notre Dame was built in the 1930’s in the Art Deco Style that compliments the surrounding Collegiate Gothic campus. The Stadium was expanded in the 1990’s, providing fans with amenities to the facility that made it one of the premier venues for collegiate football. While the amenities had a positive impact on the fan experience, the addition to the stadium concealed much of the character of the original 1930s era building. Fast forward to today. A new vision for the stadium aims to highlight and build upon the historic structure of the original stadium to create an atmosphere best described as “the house that Rockne built.”
Much of the architectural language and graphics of the new design include elements from the art deco architecture and details on campus. Renovations to the Stadium revolve around improving the fan experience. Whether they are attending a game, taking a tour, or just visiting campus, fans will experience the Stadium differently than before.
Working closely with Notre Dame’s Architectural Department, their Athletic Department including the Associate Director of Athletics and their Football Department, we produced a design that keeps their facilities cutting edge with that of other premier football stadiums, while also preserving the character that is uniquely Notre Dame.
