Nusenda Community Stadium

Albuquerque, New Mexico

The Nusenda Community Stadium is designed to support an expanded Albuquerque Public Schools sports program with a world-class, spectator-friendly facility. The bowl-shaped stadium is recessed below grade placing spectators close to the action and protected from west winds. Oriented to offer spectacular views of the Sandia Mountains, the site design responds to respecting the volcanic mesa landscape, preserving open space, minimizing the impact of natural arroyos, and shielding the surrounding community from potential noise and night light. Native and xeric landscaping along the Stadium roadways strengthens the connection to the surrounding community.
