14. Sun Devil Stadium, Arizona State University
Popular Mechanics: “This is one of the rare football stadiums to embrace Frank Lloyd Wright’s theories of incorporating natural elements into the structure. When Sun Devil Stadium opened in 1958, the design originally nestled 30,000 seats against Tempe Butte. To carve out space, crews physically cut away from the western butte, tucking the stadium into a “saddle” between two buttes and building the grandstand directly onto the bedrock.”
Our Take: Inspired by one of our countries most famous architects AND built into a mountain? What’s not to love there? Holding just over 53,000 screaming Sun Devils each Saturday, this college football gem is in the middle of the desert and unforgiving to opposing teams and fans. You’ll see plenty of Sun Devil Pitchfork hand gestures on game day, so be prepared to flash your own.
