Fortune Magazine on Populous: “The Company Changing the Face of Baseball”
June 3, 2015
In the June 1 issue of Fortune Magazine, on stands now, reporter Chris Matthews discusses Populous’ lasting impact on the Major League Baseball experience. As he explains “the firm has built two-thirds of the country’s ballparks – and changed our favorite pastime in the process.” He goes on to explain the firm’s “remarkable rise” and how Populous is “helping baseball maintain its cultural relevance.” Matthews says “The company revolutionized not just how stadiums are built – with closer seating and architecture unique to the characteristics of the ballpark’s home city – but how the game is marketed to fans.”
With the opening of the Atlanta Braves’ new SunTrust Park in 2017, Populous will have designed 20 of the 30 current MLB ballparks and been heavily involved with renovations at five others. Read the full article from Fortune here and take a look at the firm’s full portfolio of ballpark work here.
