Put on some brick, cement, dry wall, something.
Kind of reminds me of the University of Utah stadium... it was a lot smaller, but very open and easy access in and out. When I went to school there I thought it was a beautiful stadium and bare bone appeal felt like you were there before you even got there, open to the outside a backyard feel... rather than a closed off arena.

Like with Levi's, the bare bones exterior is for looks stability, and safety.

A lot of you guys don't seem to like it, but I think it gives a clean and efficient look that doesn't bend to architectural trends. It also kind of reminds you of a suspension bridge, which is an iconic symbol of the Bay Area. If you don't like it, you don't like it, it's subjective. I do though.

Haha. BRICKS! http://www.sfgate.com/news/article/Quake-turns-mission-into-dangerous-shelter-2507750.php

Bricks would make that place a death trap in a quake. you need room for flexibility! the exterior design isn't just for looks, it's for the hundreds to thousand predictable earthquakes that will shake the structure. The more wiggle room the structure has, the better ability to stay cohesive.

I can guarantee you that labor is probably well over 50% of the cost. include all the tech advancements and real estate costs and boom there you have it. This stadium would probably only cost about 850,000,000 if it were built in TX.
