Architects have taken their cues from the classic grille of a 1930s Mercedes-Benz to create a sleek new grille for the building of the iconic San Francisco Giants baseball stadium.
In the process, they’ve made a sleek yet futuristic design, said Tom Laughlin, vice president of design at W&B Associates, who designed the stadium’s façade.
It will look more modern and modern-looking than the old stadium.
I would say, this is the design that I was expecting to see in a stadium that was built before I was born, Laughlin said.
The grille was a key element in creating the façades of the Giants’ new stadium.
They’ve chosen the classic look, with its rounded lines and rounded corners, to reflect the modern architecture of the stadium, Laugle said.
It’s the perfect blend of architecture and design.
But there’s a little bit of retro about the grille.
The design has a bit of a retro feel to it, and it’s a bit retro-modern in a good way, Loughns said.
I think it’s going to be a beautiful look and feel.
Giants chairman of the Board of Directors, David Samson, called the grilles “unique” and “exciting” in a news release announcing the project.
The grilles will go on display in the Giants home stadium at Candlestick Park during the team’s new season.
“This is the first time in history that a baseball stadium will have an architect who’s as inspired as I am by the history and legacy of the game,” Samson said in the release.
“The grilles are a unique element in this complex.”
