The Need

The existing football stadium has evolved through upgrades and expansions since it's initial construction in 1979.
Although each has provided needed improvements, major deficiencies remain including stadium access, spectator amenities, premium seating options and accessibility

The Project

Taking a holistic view to modernizing the facility, the renovation plan addresses each section of the stadium while creating a cohesive design that revitalizes and unifies the entire complex.

The stadium renovation plan accomplishes four over-arching goals:​​

  • Support Fresno State's existing fan base and attract new interest from the area's energetic and diverse population.

  • Enhance the approach to the stadium with improved Main and Secondary Entries.

  • Improve accessibility through updated access and circulation to the Concourse and Seating areas.

  • Upgrade the atmosphere and fan experience in the Stadium by increasing the types of seating and modernizing the fan amenities

The Site

Built partially below ground level with the playing field 37 feet below grade, the bowl features a low profile appearance. Today this low profile appearance creates an under-whelming approach and welcoming to the field.

The proposed undulating series of fins that dynamically wraps around the stadium will create an iconic architectural feature to this stadium. The rhythm of the fins that wraps the stadium undulates up at the gateway entries and then flows back down at the corners and edges of the stadium.
