Soldier Field's Dome Spoils Chicago's Lakefront
"Despite the intimate interior of the finished Soldier Field, the bulbous and outlandish design defiles Chicago's brightest jewel... The $632 million project, which opens Sept. 29 and is chiefly funded by city hotel tax dollars, is a risky exercise in architectural invention, the first time a modern, asymmetrical seating bowl has been wedged within a historic football stadium. Unfortunately, when large-scale experiments in steel and glass go awry, the embarrassing results are impossible to hide, particularly when they've been plunked in a city's front yard."
