    These are the first columns cast in concrete. They're located on the southeast side of the excavation. On the left are columns in yellow casting molds, and on the right are columns that are covered in what look like blankets. Presumably these thermal coverings are part of the curing process. It seems likely that these are roof supports.

    These are the beginnings of the columns on the western side of the site.

    I have to say that I'm really missing the southern facing camera, which went off-line about a week ago. Now both the eastern and western cameras have partially obstructed views of the site.

    More changes to the columns. I'm not sure if these metal cylinders are permanent and part of the facade or are part of the construction process.

    Tons of holes on the northern end. Presumably these are footings for the stands.

    The south facing camera is back. You can see the outline of the playing field surrounded by the holes for the footings. The north and west facing cameras are now in better position to see the construction, although the west facing camera is down again.

    Notice the absence of large cranes and rotary drilling rigs in the hole.

    Column distribution shows where the load and force of the roof will be distributed. The columns are most dense in the northeastern corner of the stadium and along the eastern side. There are only three columns on the western side.

    Another view of the support column construction. Clearly there is an interior column and an outer layer. I'm uncertain whether the outer layer is purely for aesthetics, or serves a structural purpose.

    It's really cool you're documenting this for us. Your thoughts in the captions are great reading as well.

    So will this basically be an outdoor stadium with a roof?
    Will it be natural grass or artificial turf?

    From what I have seen on the Rams stadium site, the stadium will be open air. I believe that there will not be enough sun coming through the roof to allow grass to grow so the turf will be artificial. Also, the plans call for the stadium to be converted for basketball play, so a natural turf would make it difficult.

    Glad to hear it's open-air, but I've never been a fan of artificial turf. I'm sure the tech is improving, but don't players prefer natural turf? As a fan I was looking forward to the best part of having white/blue jerseys being they show the dirt and mud so easily. :lol:

    Column extensions. These columns are getting taller, beginning in the southeast corner. It's my belief now that these perimeter columns will support upper level(s). An upper level at ground elevation will extend supports for the roof. Looking carefully at the stadium renderings it is clear that the roof supports will not be round columns like the ones viewed in these photos, rather, they will be oblong.
