Are you ready for some football?! We were, but not without telling the story of Alexander Ralston's vision and layout for downtown Indianapolis, developed in 1825.  Lucas Oil Stadium's site orientation reinforces and commemorates Ralston's original design of the mile‐square and historic diagonal streets that once radiated from Monument Circle. The unique diagonal orientation of the stadium allows spectators striking views of central downtown while the tree‐lined urban grid of the exterior gives pedestrians a comfortable space to enjoy pre‐game festivities. Landstory serve as Landscape Architect of Record for this important downtown destination.
