Project Overview

The 450 SF press box replacement at Lincoln High School’s A.G. Spanos Stadium presented quite a design challenge. The previous press box sat elevated above a 10-foot wide berm which also served as the main entrance pathway to the stadium. A large stadium light pole also runs directly through the press box location. Access compliance was paramount because this is a school and joint-use community facility. LDA’s creative design includes a cantilevered structure that wraps around the light pole, has fully operable windows allowing occupants to better experience the open-air sight and sounds of the game yet provides shelter from inclement weather. The press box glazing is also canted 10 degrees for improved visibility and glare reduction and includes a state-of-the-art public address system. The LDA design has become an iconic symbol of both Lincoln High and the district at large.
