Abstract
It is unmistakable that sport is a universally vital element in our society today. Sport teaches us teamwork, sportsmanship, and provides a stage to compete instead of fight. Sport has been known to end civil wars and bring peace when all hope is lost. Sport has been called the world’s first global culture. It has been said that where the crowds gather, history is made. With stadiums providing a stage for over 100,000 people at one time, it is easy to associate a stadium with this thought. Since the function that stadiums hold is so important to us as people, shouldn’t our stadiums reflect the importance of the function they represent?
