    Im no designer, but the exterior needs some COLOR. It looks pretty bland. Maybe thats the rough view.

    It looks nice and they would have never gotten a new stadium in Montreal.

    I'm no designer either, but I would speculate that the "color" scheme chosen for the exterior of the Nats new Ballpark is designed to blend in to the stone exteriors of the monuments and buildings throughout Washington, DC.

    I'm gonna nitpick a bit here, but oh well....

    The outside is almost too grey, it needs some color worked in or something. Granted it fits DC very well.

    It's hard to tell with the inside as 40,000 empty seats looks kinda makes it seem bland. Perhaps it'll seem different with people in those seats, but I kinda wish they would have done more with the Outfield. I'm not a big fan of the scoreboard, the supports for the logos are way too visible and it takes away from the effect IMO.

    Otherwise it's nice, much better then that dump in RFK.

    For what it's worth, here is the rendering from their website.



    The Cherry Blossoms in Left Field would have actually been a nice touch and unique to DC. I wonder why they scrapped that.

    I also liked the big baseball over where the Red Seats are.

    That's my thinking as well.

    DC is very "stoney" and bland. We think of the White House, Capital Hill and Lincoln Memorial with their Romanesque structure, but the majority of government buildings and monuments in DC are bland, rectangular structures with stone facades.

    This new stadium looks very "Washington DC" to me.

    They designed the stadium to be consistant with the monuments and such.

    The cherry blossoms are there they just are not in bloom yet. They should be in bloom for opening day.

    I realize that, I've been to DC multiple times, but they could have done more with it while keeping the DC feel to it. When I look at it I think it looks more like a factory then a ballpark.

    My bad, I overlooked the picture of the trees.



    That should look nice.

    And as a bonus they will not be mathematically eliminated just yet.
