LA Times- The Carson concept calls only for a football stadium, with room for more than 18,000 parking spaces as well as tailgating.
“We're thinking about the project as a 21st century, next-generation stadium,” said architect David Manica, noting that the venue and renderings are still in the early conceptual stages. “We want it to be the ultimate outdoor event experience, which includes both sports and entertainment. And we want it to be uniquely L.A.”
The projected capacity for the stadium is about 68,000, expandable to more than 72,000.
One early concept for Carson is clear seats that reflect the color of the lights shining on them — the seats could be silver and black for Raiders games, and powder blue for Chargers games.
Put some money towards a valid mass transportation system? Eh, maybe after we put this 1,000 foot electric statue in the middle of the concourse. Most LA thing I have ever seen. Remember when you went to the science museum and they had those energized balls and the bolt would follow your finger when you touched it? Multiple that times a million and the increase the obnoxious factor by a billion. Sure, it looks cool. Does it have any practical use whatsoever? Nope. That's why it's perfect for LA. Football game going on? Ohhhh, look at the big pretty lightning machine. Absolutely love the 30 foot 'LOS ANGELES' outside the arena. You know, in case you forget where you are after sitting in 4 hours of traffic to get there. Everything about this picture is so LA. So concerned about appearance while functionality falls by the way side. It's all but a guarantee that they have problems with parking year one? Bet you there won't be a lack of vegetarian options at the concession stands though. Probably have to go to the basement to get a beer that isn't gluten free. I'm not even sure if they used the designs of other football stadiums to help design this. I think they just binge watched 'The Jetsons'. Light up seats? This is going to look like the most extravagant laser tag complex ever. If I didn't know any better from the outside I would just think this is just a three terminal expansion of LAX. Fitting 72,000 into a place with only room for 18,000 to get there comfortably? That's what LA does.
