bjarke ingels group and oakland A reveal pictures for a massive stadium complex located at the downtown oaklands Howard terminal. together with the new “mega-ballpark”, the project includes a transformation of the current oakland coliseum and oracle arena – almost six miles southeast of the Howard terminal – into a tech and residential center. President Dave Kaval of the Major League California Baseball Team claims that the control of both the coliseum website and the Howard terminal waterfront is important in achieving the predicted “hundred percent private-built ballpark.” Since the proposed stadium is designed as a small scale 34,000 cavalry predicts that the publicly funded development of the coliseum will serve to create new ticket sales and revenue to maintain the team.

in the design of the proposed Howard Terminal Stadium took the Bjarke Ingels group influence from the traditional diamond park type – namely Philadelphia’s Shibe Park, once home for the oaklands athletes. The plan includes a series of elevations, up to 20 floors, surrounding the park and in some cases direct views of the playing field. while the ball park is not open to the water due to the high wind levels, BIG integrates a band of green space on the stadium’s available ceilings.
The project 63,000-seat oakland coliseum is expected to be reduced to a low amphitheater in the midst of a rolling grassy landscape. along the perimeter of the site will be small groups of such development as an affordable residential complex, shopping strip, tech hub and sports complex. The adjacent arena will be maintained as it currently stands for continuing concerts and live shows. The plan for development of coliseum site prioritizes society and will serve as a public affiliation.
Danish architect bjarke ingels is preparing for the howard terminal proposal: Our design for a’s new home in the heart of Oakland’s revitalized water tries to return the game to its roots as the natural meeting place for the local community. An elevated tree-lined promenade frames the ballpark on all sides, immersion to meet the square and open the field towards the water and the city. The perimeter park connects a cascade of social spaces for the fans to enjoy the game on game days and expand the urban fabric with a neighboring park to enjoy all 365 days a year. In other words – we take back the park in the “ballpark” .  bjarke ingels oakland stadium ” width=”818″ height=”460″ srcset=”https://static.designboom.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/bjarke-ingels-group-oakland-designboom-07.jpg 818w, https://static.designboom.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/bjarke-ingels-group-oakland-designboom-07-768×432.jpg 768w” sizes=”(max-width: 818px) 100vw, 818px”/>
