Architect Of Everton's New Stadium Says He Hopes To Recognize Club's History
Everton's new stadium architect, Dan Meis, is "keen to ensure" the club's history is "properly" recognized in the construction of the Bramley-Moore Dock development, according to Carl Markham of the PA. The American "wants to include the tradition of Goodison Park, the club's home of 125 years," in the £300M ($380M), 50,000-plus capacity "new-build on the banks of the River Mersey." Meis: "So much of where we start isn't about architecture -- it is about the stories and the history. ... We have seen a lot of new-builds not really tick that box." Asked whether "any representation of Goodison could be made in the new stadium," Meis added, "We are looking at that opportunity -- there are some very real things there we can translate. Everyone knows Goodison was challenged as an old building but there is plenty to love about it" (PA, 6/22).
