A celebration of America’s favorite football team’s newest home. In the design and construction of the new Cowboys Stadium in Dallas, an inspired mission to integrate world-class contemporary art into a state-of-the-art football stadium created an instant architectural icon. Nineteen works of contemporary art, most commissioned for specific sites within the stadium building, were installed to dynamically complement the architecture. The artists range from established stars of the art world like Olafur Eliasson, Lawrence Weiner, and Mel Bochner, to up-and-coming names such as Matthew Ritchie, Doug Aitken, and Teresita Fernández, among others, with the resulting collection rivaling that of any world-class galleries. Even without the art, the Cowboys Stadium is an engineering marvel. A twenty-first-century retractable roofing system allows natural light and air to be exposed onto the world’s largest column-free interior space. Lauded by the Wall Street Journal as "simply mesmerizing," the Cowboys Stadium is a work of art in its own right. This volume captures the exhilaration of the synergy of art and architecture in this lauded landmark.
