 MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Vikings will have a fixed roof and moveable front windows on their new stadium.
Designer Bryan Trubey of Dallas-based HKS Architects presented images of the $975 million project to a crowd of fans, public officials and members of the Vikings organization Monday night. The event took place at the Guthrie Theater, a few blocks from where the stadium will be built in downtown Minneapolis.
It will replace the 31-year-old Metrodome, which the Vikings will vacate after the 2013 season. They'll play outside at the University of Minnesota's TCF Bank Stadium for two years while the new venue is under construction.
The steeply pitched, translucent roof will let natural light stream in, making the covered, glass-centric stadium seem more like it's outside.
