Memorial Stadium can be a better contributor to it’s environ’s. The stadium currently is the largest element on the University of Nebraska at Lincoln’s Campus; however, it is used the least. In the year 2009 it was used for 12 events most of which were Cornhusker football games. Other events include a Larry the Cable Guy comedy show and State High School tournament finals. The circulation around the stadium is dynamic in the sense that it has a high level of fluctuation in its traffic. The traffic is either High density or low. I call this being turned into a dead space. This also results in the anticipation of the event dropping off and being detached from the atmosphere. The ultimate goal is to explore different avenues to make the stadium circulate more efficiently both internally as well as connecting to the surrounding environs, extending the atmosphere and creating moments of anticipation.
