Sports stadiums are usually very introverted and self-absorbed structures, and what I really loved about this project was how it’s so open and generous, a porous piece of infrastructure that really contributed to the urban context and the public realm.

To celebrate Tec de Monterrey’s 75th anniversary, the university opened a 10,057-seat stadium to house its unique American football program, as well as men’s and women’s soccer. The facility, which includes spaces for weight training, rehabilitation, and meeting rooms, now accommodates the school’s entire athletic division, which plays a key role in the university’s Tec21 educational pedagogy. The field was lowered 23 feet to allow an accessible concourse at street level and match the existing building language on campus. The south end zone features a shaded, multipurpose public plaza with open views of the action on the field.
