Architect Peter Eisenman to discuss film about his University of Phoenix Stadium for the Arizona Cardinals at New York's Center for Architecture, Thurs., Feb 12, 2009
Seminal theoretician and influential architect, Peter Eisenman is also an irrepressible sports fanatic. In this revealing look into his design for the iconic new home for the Arizona Cardinals football team, Eisenman takes us on a tour of the stadium that represents the culmination of nearly a decade of his work on this visionary sports facility. Spectacular footage, along with Eisenman's explanation of his intentions as he walks through the stadium's spaces, provides a compelling presentation of this singular work of architecture by one of today's leading practitioners.
