I'm not overly jazzed about the design either. But like some other people, I could care less what it looks like as long as:

1) It gets freaking built
2) The sight lines are great
3) The design the stadium with acoustics in mind. Home field advantage is critical and any advantage you can get is worth it.
4) There is plenty of parking

Other than these things, I can quibble about my appreciation for the exterior design. It really doesn't matter.

Also, if these are just renderings, they might as well put some out that creates a little buzz. I agree that if the designs are just "placeholders" they they are approaching this project all wrong.

Quick! Somebody photoshop some stars and laser beams into this picture and make this guy happy! If these architects can't make this rendering look like a Pixar film then the stadium will suck. The logic is undeniable. Oh yeah and York sucks too! Without the best looking stadium in the whole wide world we will never amount to more than a 4 win football team. I mean, it only makes sense.
I think it looks good. The bells and whistles annoy me. Hope it happens.

Take away the berm around the outside and the office buildings and it wouldn't look too different than the current Niner concept.

That stadium will never get built.

Plus, the fans in LA do not want the Chargers or Raiders moving in.

I don't know, I like that design a lot more than the niner's proposed stadium. I would prefer it without the city walk mall, but I really like the way it's sunk into the hill.

I think both of them could do more with the design to bounce sound back onto the field. I feel the niners home field advantage is WAY less than other teams' because their stadiums were designed to be loud.

I live in LA and I want a team to come here, but I'd much prefer an expansion team. No one will top my Niners, but I'd like there to be a team and games here.

I like the sunken stadium design (or raised ground around it).

Our prospective stadium (Niners) does look a bit generic, but you know they're going to jazz it up and it'll look nice and unique. They're primarily just showing the core structure which emphasizes sightlines. The most recent pic gives an idea of how it won't be just a boring, simple, college type stadium, and there's no doubt it'll begin to look better and better as the details are designed and released.
kinda looks plain to me but im sure theyll add some stuff to it to make it nice. i dont care, as long as there is a winner inside those walls im good
I'll take Kezar over this detroit lyons copycat stadium anyday.

You make a very important point. Whereas the design gives great sightlines of the field from every seat, Im not so sure the open arena architecture takes advantage of honing in the crowd noise, something that the designers of Quest Field made sure of instilling in their stadium. All that noise from SC Stadium will not drown out the opposition; instead, it will escape into the beautiful breeze that all the fans can "enjoy" in our new stadium. Also, you're assuming that the 68K+ seats will sell out............I doubt it, considering that Candlestick looks barren at times during the season.

Point being, Santa Clara was always at a disadvantage because there's really nothing there that will attract the "casual" fan to come to the games. If we cant fill Candlestick, what makes you think that SC will be any different ? On top of that, we have a wide arena stadium that will allow all crowd noise to escape.

Bad idea, if you ask me...............
