The design for Heinz Field is inspired by elements integral to Pittsburgh and its people. The open south end of the stadium creates a connection between the stadium and downtown, making the city part of the game day experience. Events and people flow through the facility via the south plaza, which we renovated in 2015 to create nearly 360-degree connectivity throughout the stadium and add new social experiences for fans. Two towers frame the stadium, whose stone-like masonry is inspired by the stone and steel buildings that once defined the city’s skyline. The stadium echoes Pittsburgh’s rich heritage, while its placement ensures a strong connection between the city’s urban character and its newest landmarks.
