Chargers and Raiders reveal revamped L.A. stadium designs

New designs emphasize open air, futuristic flowing design.

Two months after unveiling plans and renderings for a stadium in Carson, the San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders have completely overhauled their design for the $1.7-billion project.

The Chargers and Raiders presented their concept in New York this week to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and the Committee on Los Angeles Opportunities, composed of six team owners.

Although the original renderings were created with input from only the Chargers, the new design is the result of almost two months of collaboration between the franchises.

The revised plans show a futuristic open-air venue with a peristyle intentionally reminiscent of the one at the L.A. Memorial Coliseum.

"We wanted the building to be iconic and sleek, like a luxury sports car," said David Manica, president of Manica Architecture, who is designing the stadium. "Very aerodynamic, in motion, flowing lines from every angle."
