What do you guys think?
Look kind of cool; however, those aren't the designs that are being submitted for review by the city of Menneapolis.
Vikings, MSFA and HKS Group Unveil New Multi-Purpose Stadium Design
Minneapolis, MN (May 13, 2013) - The Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority (MSFA), the Minnesota Vikings and HKS Sports & Entertainment Group together unveiled the design of the State’s new multi-purpose stadium Monday evening in Minneapolis, a major milestone in getting the $975 million stadium built on time and on budget. The design package will now be submitted to the Minneapolis Stadium Implementation Committee and the City of Minneapolis for review.
Described as an authentic structure influenced by its Minnesota location, the new stadium exhibits a bold, progressive design that combines efficient functionality with stunning architecture. With a soaring prow, the largest transparent roof in the world, and operable doors that open to the downtown skyline, the facility’s openness and sleek geometric exterior will make it unlike any other stadium in the country.
are the tax payers getting stuck with half the bill again?
"Stuck" with it? They voted for it.
I like that.
Looks like a rectangular version of Cowboys Stadium.
Conceptually, it's interesting. Don't like how modern the interior areas--not the field, but the concessions and such--look. Looks like a sterile business environment and not a fun sporting venue.
The design in the OP looks like Mila Jovovich's costume from 5th Element from the outside.
All that money and the roof doesnt even open.
Kinda cool. Much better then the big corrugated Tin Barn Yard look the Falcons are going with.
yeah its a huge upgrade over the metrodome
A wet cardboard box is an upgrade over The Metrodome.
only after being held hostage by the Vikings when they threatened to move to LA.
As long as its not a snow covered wet cardboard box.....
Too Soon?! :
I always liked the stadium designs of All Pro Football 2k8. They should of built it like a ship, and have a gigantic Viking holding the scoreboard and replay screen.
Given my ethnicity the Vikings should change their name.
Also, people frequently vote for other people to pay the taxes on a project. Out of towners' taxes, folks in pay brackets that the voter doesn't inhabit.
Is that puppy gonna have some strange shadow patterns on the field.
Where is the big screen tv?
Guess they could give everyone a pair of Google glasses for replays.
I like it. I like atl new one also.
As long as the roof can take the stress loads of a lot of snow.
As the way the roof is shaped it will pile and drift up there.
How so? Are you sure you are looking at the correct design? The one in the link I provided is a pretty simple roof.
Not your link the one with the picture posted as the first post. And for that one - Yes. The roof parts there could easily get loads of snow up there.
If you have ever seen massive snow storms - which happen more to the Northern area of the USA. Then you would see the reason for the comment.
Also their other roof went down under similar circumstances a long time ago.
I didn't see the reason for the comment because the design you were commenting on was not the one that is actually being proposed. Other than that I fully agree with your concerns with that type of design. It appears to be susceptible to snow build up. Perhaps that is one of the reasons why they went with a different design.
