The Superdome’s New Superskin
Remember back during Hurricane Katrina when New Orleans’ massive Superdome stadium got all messed up?
Well almost four years later, the famed 34 year-old structure is finally getting a much-needed touch-up. Right now Baton Rouge-based firm Trahan Architects is currently installing 400,000 square feet of new aluminum skin to resurface damaged portions of the Superdome’s exoskeleton.
As the image above illustrates, when completed in 2010, the new and improved Superdome’s $200 million make-over will conform with its original, iconic aesthetic while upgraded and retrofitted for the 21st century.
