Vikings Stadium Renderings

Everybody hates the Metrodome, and its blank concrete walls are a crime against urban design. Here are some previously unreleased renderings of Vikings stadium proposal by HNTB. While these will never become reality, I think there’s a lot of great stuff here.

I really like the idea of a partially retractable roof. It will be interesting to see if team owner Zygi Wilf is serious about bringing a Major League Soccer team to Minneapolis. If so, this new stadium (however it ends up looking) would be a terrific place to be on a nice summer day. And imagine how busy downtown would be with two major league events happening on the same day.

I liked this previously released concept by HKS, but questioned if it could be as functional as it was beautiful. To my eyes, this one had iconic potential…
