The design is modeled after the Greco-Roman architectural tradition, complete with doric columns rising above the entrance. The name was picked in a naming contest held by the city. Edward Meuller was the winner with Soldier Field as a memorial to American Soldiers who have died in wars. Designed in 1919 and opened October 9, 1924. Previous to 1971 the Bears home was Wrigley Field, home to the Chicago Cubs baseball team. Overall consensus on the aesthetic appeal of the project fell very short. It was an eyesore and received mixed reviews within the community.
Architect on the project Dirk Lohan had this to say about that, “I would never say Soldier Field is going to be an architectural landmark. Nobody has copied it; nobody has learned from it. People like it for nostalgic reasons. They remember the games and parades and tractor pulls and veterans’ affairs they’ve seen there over the years. I wouldn’t do this if it were the Parthenon. But this isn’t the Parthenon.”
