A stadium is a place or venue for events such as outdoor sports and concerts. Stadiums typically consist of a field or stage that is partly or completely surrounded by a structure that provides protection, lighting, and other services that allows spectators to seat or stand during the sport event or concert. Stadiums can have movable fields and partial roofs to protect spectators from the sunlight, and they even have retractable seating.
There are several types of stadiums and 3d model computer graphics are commonly used to visualize them. Stadium 3d models are typically used to represent the actual architectural structure in a computer generated city scene.
City scenes can be used as backdrops in games, marketing materials for web and print, urban planning and development, and anytime when the stadium 3d model can provide a visual reference of the actual stadium.
