Last Thursday, we told you that the Kansas City-based Populous, the firm who designs and builds almost every sports stadium anywhere anymore, had set a record by landing the commission to create the main 2014 Winter Olympics stadium (this on top of the other main stadium they’re building for 2012). As if that weren’t enough, despite having helped Chicago with their unfortunately unsuccessful bid, Populous now has its eyes on 2016:
“We’re disappointed about (Chicago). We can’t win them all, though,” Populous designer Jon Knight told KMBC‘s Maria Antonia.
The firm is already working on a stadium for an upcoming World Cup competition in Brazil, so it hopes that will give the firm an edge.
