Trubey Stories: Behind the Scenes With the Man Behind Cowboys, Liverpool Stadiums

On Tuesday, HKS's Bryan Trubey, an Outstanding Alumnus of Texas A&M's College of Architecture, paid a visit to his alma mater to discuss, for the most part, how he and his team designed Cowboys Stadium. And, awful nice of 'em, TAMU has posted the entirety of his presentation; architecture nerds will find it after the jump.

There's not necessarily a lot of "news" in there, but at the 28:53 mark Trubey turns his attention from Arlington to Liverpool, where, he says, "We're finally gonna get our financing" to build the new stadium, which Tom Hicks debuted two years ago before putting it on hold due to, ya know, his not having any money to pay for the nearly $600-million Stanley Park facility. But last I saw, oh, two weeks ago, nothing's definite for Hicks's football team's new home, which, at one point, was scheduled to open in 2011. They're just, oh, "optimistic." Hell, somebody's gotta be.
