Abstract:

A new dual-purpose stadium which reflects not only the classical origins of the Olympic Games, but also the tradition of baseball, is the architectural centerpiece for the 1996 Centennial Olympic Games. It is constructed for the Olympic Games with the knowledge that it will be partially demolished and resurrected to serve as the showcase for a completely different sport.
