Texas AM grad designed new Cowboys stadium

The Dallas Cowboys'' new home in Arlington, Texas - a $1.2 billion concoction of concrete, steel and glass earning favorable reviews from fans and the press - is the brainchild of Bryan Trubey, native Texan and graduate of the Texas A&M College of Architecture.
Beginning his storied career in architecture at the age of 16, Trubey graduated in 1983 taking a job in Chicago before gaining prominence for his award-winning design of the National Stadium in Hong Kong.
"The new Cowboy Stadium is a magnificent achievement in architectural design," says Jorge Vargas, dean of Texas A&M''s College of Architecture in an interview with the school newspaper, the Battalion."There is perhaps no greater measure of a school''s success than for its graduates to command the respect of their profession and the greater community."
Some spectators have expressed concerns that the stadium''s enormous center monitor may interfere with high-flying punt and field goals. No football has hit the screen as of writing.
Under 50 and already prolific, Trubey has designed stadiums for the Brewers in Milwaukee, the Colts in Indianapolis, the Stars in Dallas, Liverpool''s football club, and is currently working on a stadium to house the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
