MX$863m plans revealed for 'iconic' Mexico City baseball stadium

by Tom Anstey | 09 Dec 2014

Designs for a new MX$863m (US$60m, €48.5m, £38.3m) 13,000-seat baseball stadium to be home to the Los Diablos Rojos in Mexico City have been revealed by Chicago-based JAHN and Santa Fe-based ADG architects.

The 70,000sq m (753,000sq ft) stadium, which resembles the team’s trident logo, has a roof composed of lightweight steel wrapped in PTFE textile material. According to JAHN, the roof will “become an iconic symbol for the great city of Mexico.”

Designed using local materials from the Valley of Mexico and inspired by the pre-Hispanic era, the design includes specific references to the court of the ancient Mesoamerican ballgame and ‘emphasises the connection between the earth and the heavens’, according to ADG.

The eco-friendly stadium has been designed to offer a new surrounding public space, with the stadium to be integrated into four major public spaces. In the north of the development, a civic plaza is planned to be the focal point for entry into the stadium. At the south end, a public plaza – designed to be accessible through the year – will support the local community, providing an integrated approach to retail and cultural programmes and will feature a Diablos Hall of Fame and a public gardens.

Work on the development will start in the first quarter of 2015, with the stadium expected to open as the focal point of the Magdalena Mixhuca sports complex in June 2017.
