     Hello friends of the communities that make up HIVE. In this post I am going to present a series of photos, taken by my grandson, of the magnificent multi-sport stadium Hard Rock in Miami, Florida. My grandchildren, Adrián and Andrea, were selected to do volunteer hours as a "ball person" in the games of the Miami Open, this year's version, and I asked them to take these beautiful photos that accompany my description of the place. I hope you enjoy the post, as always, I look forward to any criticism, observation, or comment you may have.

     The multi-sport American football stadium "Hard Rock Stadium", former Dolphin Stadium, home of the Miami Hurricanes football team, since 2008, has been temporarily transformed into a tennis palace for the Miami Tennis Open, in its version of 2022, which takes place between March 21 and April 3.

     This majestic stadium, in its original version for soccer, was rebuilt between 2015 and 2016, to leave behind the old 1987 building. The redesign was carried out by the architectural firm John Bolles de la Populous, a company that specialized in this type of building. The maximum architectural attraction is its roof which occupies an area of 56,600 square meters, with an estimated weight of 17 thousand tons; This roof, in addition to bordering the field of play, provides shade for the seats on hot Florida days. To support this structure, it was necessary to erect 4 reinforced concrete columns, one in each corner, cables, and steel frames that support the 108-meter-high mast.

     The stadium has a capacity for more than 75,000 seated spectators, reducing it, in the conditioning made for the celebration of the Miami Open, to only 13,200 in the Hard Rock stands. The complex is located in the American suburb of Miami Gardens, in the north of the state of Florida.

Note the amazing ceiling (Vista de las graderías, en primer plano las de la cancha de tenis, en el trasfondo se pueden ver parte de las graderías de la cancha de futbol. Nótese el increíble techo)

In the stadium itself, only the most important matches of the tournament will be held, including the semifinals and finals of singles, doubles, both men's, women's, and mixed. In total, 18 fields have been set up outside the stadium, all of them illuminated, with a capacity of 5,700 seats each. Also having practice courts.

     In the photos, you can appreciate the preponderance of blue and green tones in its fields and bleachers. Among the facilities that have been refurbished are a track with 5,000 seats, a lounge for players, changing rooms, and a gym The stadium has a roof design that allows fans to enjoy the shade on hot days, four giant screens, one in each corner, seats, halls and bathrooms with all the comforts.

     In addition to the usual American football games, several baseball games and even musical concerts, such as the one presented by the British rock band Pink Floyd, have been held at the stadium. Even once the Miami Open is over, the exteriors of the stadium will be conditioned for the Formula One races

     Hola amigos de las comunidades que conforman HIVE. En esta entrega les voy a presentar una serie de fotos, tomadas por mi nieto, del magnífico multideportivo estadio Hard Rock de Miami, Florida. Mis nietos, Adrián y Andrea, fueron seleccionados para realizar horas de voluntariado como “ball person” en los juegos del Miami Open, versión de este año, y les solicité que tomaran estas bellas fotos que acompañan mi escrito descriptivo del lugar. Espero disfruten el post, como siempre espero cualquier crítica, observación o comentario que tengan a bien hacerme.

     El multideportivo estadio de futbol americano el “Hard Rock Stadium”, antiguo Dolphin Stadium, sede del equipo de futbol Miami Hurricanes, desde el 2008, se ha transformado en un palacio tenístico para la realización del Abierto de tenis de Miami, en su versión del 2022, el cual se realiza entre el 21 de marzo y el 3 de abril.

     Este majestuoso estadio, en su versión original para futbol, fue reconstruido entre 2015 y 2016, para dejar atrás la vieja edificación de 1987. El rediseño estuvo a cargo de la firma de arquitectos John Bolles de la Populous, empresa especializada en este tipo de edificaciones. La máxima atracción arquitectónica lo constituye su techo que ocupa un área de 56.600 metros cuadrados, con un peso calculado en 17 mil toneladas; dicho techo, además de bordear el campo de juego, brinda sombra a los asientos en los días calurosos de Florida. Para sostener esta estructura fue necesario levantar 4 columnas de hormigón armado, una en cada esquina, cables y armaduras de acero que soportan el mástil de 108 metros de altura.

     El estadio tiene una capacidad para más de 75 mil espectadores sentados, reduciéndola, en el acondicionamiento hecho para la celebración del Miami Open, a solo 13200 en las gradas del Hard Rock. El complejo se encuentra ubicado en el suburbio estadounidense de Miami Gardens, al norte del estado de la Florida.

     En el estadio propiamente dicho solamente se celebrarán los partidos mas importantes del torneo, incluyendo las semifinales y las finales de sencillos, dobles, tanto masculino, femenino como mixto. En total, en el exterior del estadio, se han acondicionado 18 canchas, todas ellas iluminadas, con una capacidad para 5700 asientos cada una. Contando además con canchas de práctica.

     En las fotos se puede apreciar la preponderancia de tonos azules y verdes en sus canchas y graderías. Entre las facilidades que se han refaccionado se encuentran una pista con 5000 butacas, un salón para jugadores, vestuarios y un gimnasio El estadio posee un diseño en su cubierta que permite que los aficionados disfruten de sombra en días calurosos, cuatro pantallas gigantes en cada esquina, asientos, vestíbulos y baños con todas las comodidades.

It is gigantic this multisport Hard Rock Stadium besides being very colorful, with various disciplines that house this place, it would be interesting to know if they kept something of the old version of 1987... I think it is important to maintain certain facades of the original design of the structures or buildings. On the other hand I loved how specific with captions each photo you show us. What a great post 😊

Hi guys. Thank you for your words of encouragement. The stadium was originally called Joe Robbie Stadium, it had no roof and its capacity was smaller. I imagine that the VIP area and the facilities for television, parking, bathrooms, cafes, etc., have been improved and even, in some cases built, in the new stadium that we see today.

Hola dimas. Gracias por sus palabras de aliento. El estadio se llamaba originalmente Joe Robbie Stadium, carecía de techo y su capacidad era menor. Imagino que la parte VIP y las facilidades para Televisón, estacionamientos, baños, cafetines, etc,, han sido mejorados e incluso, en algunos cados construidos, en el nuevo estadio que vemos hoy en día.

Hello Friends of Pinmapple. It is never too late to thank your kindness to your followers. Happy weekend

Warm greetings dear friend Benjamin. Wow, I never thought Hard Rock had a sports stadium! Because I've been experiencing their attractive Cafes in various parts of the world, knowing that they've expanded their global enterprise to include bigger buildings is an interesting revelation. Thank you for showcasing this remarkable work of architecture. Have a safe, healthy, and productive week! 😊

Hello friend Erne, I missed your wise comments about what we publish on this platform. I recently made a post about the latest Hard Rock café that opened in Ghicago. I had the opportunity to visit this stadium when I attended a baseball game with my son-in-law, before the remodeling carried out by Hard Rock, which turned it into a gigantic American football stadium, but which has also become, through the work and grace of great designers, architects and engineers, on the scene of other massive sports. I understand that they have even built hotels, casinos, and a theme park in South Carolina. Happy week to you too.
