A Chicago lakefront landmark, Soldier Field (then Grant Park Stadium) was completed in 1924 and renamed a year later in honor of the solders killed in World War I. Designed by Holabird and Roche, the stadium featured Greek columns and a capacity of 120,000. The Chicago Bears came to Soldier Field in 1971, seeking bigger quarters. They agitated for, and got, a beautiful renovation with luxurious skyboxes, premium club seats, steel-frame design, and transparent glass walls. Conceived by Wood + Zapata, the modernized Soldier Field now provides unequaled sightlines and dynamic geometrical shapes. A memorial wall at the north entrance and a restored Doughboy statue inside the south end continue the tribute to fallen heroes. Soldier Field is a welcome addition to Pomegranate's Building Book series, which includes Marshall Field's, The Reliance Building, Sears Tower, The Rookery, The Merchandise Mart, and The Auditorium Building, all by Jay Pridmore.
