Stadium Architecture Porn: New Meadowlands Revealed

We go across the Hudson River for this tantalizing stadium architecture porn. It's the design for the new Meadowlands Stadium that was unveiled this morning at the official groundbreaking. The $1.3 billion Giants/Jets stadium is slated to open in 2010 and will seat 82,000. It will have a skin of "aluminum louvers" and interior lighting that's going to change colors depending on who's playing. And there's more personalization: the louvers are in layers and can reflect the team colors, big pylons will show videos of the team that's playing and a "Great Wall" 400 feet long and 40 feet high that show photo murals. Oh, and that's a rail line and station outside the stadium. Can't wait for the Great Wall of Jersey, though.
