The Love of Sport...

Rugby is to Aussies as Hockey is to Canadians and Baseball is to Americans. It is not just a sport, it is a nationally respected organization that builds and displays pride and dedication to its country and culture. Okay so this may sound a little extreme, but when it comes to Soccer and Rugby, the Aussies spare no expense in building some of the most original, modern and advanced sporting centers in the world. Set to open in 2010, the Melbourne Rectangular Stadium (as it is temporarily named) is a spectacle all on its own. The $200 million stadium was designed by COX Architects and can comfortable house up to 31,000 screaming fans. The stadium is a "bioframe" design, with a geodesic done roof covering covered in thousands of mini LED lights. Lights that are designed to mimic the energy levels of a crowd during a match. Gone are open fields and cold metal bleachers, welcome to the new luxury and artistic life of sporting!
