  1. AOU has some valid points, but the audience for the new stadium is not concerned with architectural technological innovation. They want gimmicks that make their city amazingly always new. Na mean?

  2. Yeah, architecture doesn’t have to be innovative to be successful. I think AOU don’t only have a problem with the end results but also with all the hype and claims of innovation. But, you’re the one who has personally experienced it, and you’re much more attuned to its context.
