6. Autzen Stadium, University of Oregon
Popular Mechanics: “Autzen Stadium has the curvature of a Pringle, with sidelines sweeping taller than the low-strung end zones. A single deck that can hold 59,000 fans isn’t broken up by rings of glassed-in luxury seating. The stadium is built on bedrock, with locally sourced infill built around it to encase the state’s largest sports venue in earth while sinking the field.”
Our Take: There’s green in the stadium, and green all around the stadium. Autzen takes advantage of the natural, wooded beauty of the state of Oregon and combines it with the innovation of Nike. Be prepared to see the cutting edge of uniform technology as the Ducks rarely wear the same uniform twice in one season thanks to Nike founder and Oregon alum, Phil Knight.
