"Shoulder Pads" For A Stadium

Design and architecture firm Gensler has released their newest plans for the proposed football stadium in downtown Los Angeles.

The biggest changes to the design involve the roof, said one Gensler architect. The roof will no longer be retractable, but "deployable," meaning the roof can be taken off, but not instantaneously, which will bring the structure's cost down significantly.

Developer AEG hopes to have the stadium ready by the 2016 football season writes Sam Lubell.
