  • REMODEL COLISEUM PLANS!

    Now that George Lucas is building his 1.5 billion museum in Expo Park, the plans for the remodel of the Coliseum should be altered to match this masterpiece that is going up in 4 years.

    Only logical option is to blow up the LAMC, save the Peristyle, and build anew. Anything else is a joke.

    any plan that looks like lipstick on a pig is a strategic mistake. Given USC's incredible physical changes in past decade and the new UV along with Lucas' museum, they better get this right.

      Can the big Trojan in the sky stop Pat's Tower?

        It certainly makes the plan by USC look even worse. There is going to be millions more people in Exposition Park each year... some would likely pay to tour the Coliseum except the current plan is going to viewed as a national embarrassment sooner or later. Chicago got blamed for Soldier Field... at least they got a functional new stadium out of it. USC will be blamed for butchering a national landmark and it will be impossible to ever make the stadium symmetrical again.

          Can they just eliminate the plans to build the press box and still "renovate" the Coliseum? That's sounds like a better solution.
          Instead the better solution would be to update the press box without altering the shape of it and creating a more permanent and cooler-looking peristyle suite. Way better option.

            The better option would be the Lambeau Field style of suites. The Coliseum press box is fine as is, it's the suites that are causing the angst.

              Good...too much parking at the Coliseum.

            I really don't understand why the Coliseum renovation is going forward. I have only heard negative opinions by everyone on this board, at USC events, and at alumni gatherings. Can anyone on this board give me a positive reason why this renovation is good for the Coliseum or USC? I haven't seen one justified reason for it.

              IDK. So the USC Adm can tell the alums/boosters they did "something". The problems with the LAMC will surely be magnified once the new soccer stadium, Rams stadium and now this Lucas museum are all completed and open. Once the public gets a taste of these new venues, one would think everyone will ask why hasn't anything been done to modernize the Coli. But, by then, it might just be too late.

            Yup. The Love Boat needs to go.

              Someone needs to step up, and fast. Eliminate the press box plan altogether and you've got a good enough remodel.

                I agree. Would this even be legal, however, given the Coli's status as a historic monument?

                  Yes. While complicated, it is possible to completely demo a National Historic Landmark. In this case, it would not be a complete demo.
