On February 7th, the eyes of the sporting world will be on the San Francisco Bay Area.  And, one of the stars of pro football's big game may be Levi's Stadium itself.  Tim Cahill ("kay-hill")--the chief design officer for HNTB Corporation--led the stadium's design team, and shares what makes it so special...

(CAHILL--BITE #1):
"OUR VISION INVOLVED THREE PILLARS: TECHNOLOGY, SUSTAINABILITY, AND FAN-EXPERIENCE.  AND, WE TOOK CUES FROM 'SILICON VALLEY', IN DESIGNING THE MOST-TECHNOLOGICALLY-ADVANCED STADIUM IN PRO-FOOTBALL."

(CAHILL--BITE #2):
"THE ARCHITECTURAL LAYOUT WAS INSPIRED BY GREEK- AND ROMAN-AMPHITHEATERS:  THIS INCLUDES PLAZAS AT BOTH ENDS THAT SERVE AS GRAND ENTRANCES--AND ENGAGE THE FANS IN A CELEBRATORY PROCESSION."

(CAHILL--BITE #3):
"'LEVI'S STADIUM' FEATURES THE LARGEST LOWER SEATING-BOWL IN THE LEAGUE--WHICH BRINGS FANS EVEN CLOSER TO THE ACTION.  IN ADDITION, ITS LARGE, OPEN-AIR STRUCTURE AND PEDESTRIAN-CONCOURSES PROVIDE VIEWS BOTH INTO THE SEATING-BOWL, AND OUT INTO THE COMMUNITY."

(CAHILL--BITE #4):
"THE STADIUM ALSO EMBRACES A PROGRESSIVE APPROACH TO SUSTAINABLE DESIGN AND TECHNOLOGY:  IT USES 80-PERCENT RECYCLED WATER--AND HAS A 'LIVING ROOF' THAT FEATURES NATIVE-CALIFORNIA PLANT-SPECIES.  ALSO, 20-THOUSAND SQUARE-FEET OF PHOTOVOLTAIC PANELS GENERATE POWER AND PROVIDE SUN-SHADING.  IN FACT, ON GAME-DAYS, THE STADIUM ACHIEVES NET-ZERO ENERGY."
