Detroit, Michigan, USA
Ford Field is a unique stadium. It allows a large amount of natural light to enter the facility thanks to huge skylights and big glass windows at the open corners. The windows along the ceiling are frosted to imitate the automotive factories dominant in Detroit. The stand and concourse receive sunlight throughout the year and provide fans with a view of downtown.
