The Lynchburg City Stadium was built in 1939 to provide combined football and baseball stadium facilities to the city. The stadium complex is home to both the Lynchburg E.C. Glass and Heritage High School’s varsity football teams. The City of Lynchburg was interested in solutions for bringing the stadium up to current standards while retaining the original charm and the architectural integrity of the stadium. The updated wayfinding and signage along with the construction of the plaza monuments pays homage to the stadium’s 80-year history. This renovation is a testament to the City’s dedication to ensuring the City Stadium continues to be well-used and well-loved by future generations
An emphasis on the environmental graphics to help shape the impact and user experience as visitors enter the stadium was established. Plaza monuments were designed to help shape and light the space while also providing information to visitors that celebrates the history of the stadium and athletes that played there. The monuments provide a tribute to the stadium and its players’ legacy.
