UM: Michigan Stadium

Greg Dooley of MVictors interviews John Pollack, an opponent of the Michigan Stadium renovations. The project is nearly complete – UM is hosting an open house for the public on July 14 – and Pollack weighs in on the process and outcome: “Before, as you approached the stadium there was this sense of anticipation whether you’d been there 100 times or never had been there. Because even if you knew what was coming, you walk in and this mighty bowl unfolds before you. Now you’re walking up to two corporate-looking structures and … the bowl is diminished because the proportions are all wrong. Those boxes are literally monuments to self-aggrandizement and unfortunately they diminish the stadium.” [Source]
