Kansas City, Missouri
Kauffman Stadium set the standard in professional ballpark design when it debuted in 1973, changing the shape of the multi-purpose, donut-shaped buildings of the era. The stadium’s seating bowls and sight lines still serve as industry models today. The ballpark’s 2009 renovation transformed the fan’s experience, creating a new stadium environment while preserving its revered qualities. Kauffman’s sleek and modern update complements the existing, sweeping curves of the complex’s original design. Fans now enjoy a massive crown-shaped outﬁeld video board, an expanded outﬁeld plaza, wider concourses and other immersive amenities.
