CHALLENGE. The original Yankee Stadium, built in 1923, was one of the most iconic structures in the game of baseball. Enveloped in history, mystery and an environment many thought would be impossible to emulate, “the house that Babe built” was nearing the end of its storied life in the early 2000s. We were bestowed the honor of continuing its legacy by creating a new American icon.

INNOVATION. The new Yankee Stadium, completed in 2009, captures the revelry and pride needed to carry the most storied franchise in American sport into the next generation. The ballpark’s skin is highlighted by a four-story limestone and granite façade inspired by the 1923 Bronx Stadium. Its field geometry mimics the original ballpark’s, challenging the next generation of heroes wearing pinstripes.

  • Yankee Stadium serves as a tribute to the game, a testament to a team and a city, and a showcase for memories past and potential.

Although the ballpark was built across the street from the original location, New Yankee Stadium has ignited a transformation of the Bronx community in which it is located. The stadium reinvigorated the area, and also injected life into a franchise that arguably has the greatest history of any team in Major League Baseball.

IMPACT. The new community spirit surrounding the treasured team helped motivate the Yankees to succeed. With a loyal fan base and, most importantly, a new ballpark, the team won the World Series during New Yankee Stadium’s inaugural year.

By designing the ballpark, we were able to produce a modern interpretation of baseball’s most prominent and historic brand. Yankee Stadium is a ballpark for the future with a soul of the past. It provides a special place where fans can gather and share the experience of what it means to be a Yankee.

Every single thing about the stadium, every visual, every amenity ... has exceeded what I was hoping we'd get.
