Renderings released for state-of-the-art stadium in Los Angeles

(FOX19) - The drawings have been released for a stadium in Los Angeles that will serve as the home for a planned NFL team in LA and a convention center.

Los Angeles-based architectural firm Gensler released new images of the latest design scheme for Farmers Field on Wednesday.

Gensler Principal Ron Turner described the difficulties of creating the new stadium in a press release.

"Our charge is not only to design a stadium that offers the ideal outdoor NFL experience but also to have a fully enclosable facility that creates an equally appealing location and atmosphere for indoor events and conventions," he said.

Farmers Field is expected to file a draft Environmental Impact Report with the City of Los Angeles in 2012. Ground will break on the stadium and event center later in the year, with design and construction complete and ready for the 2016 NFL season.
