“Stadium builders have unveiled their vision for Minnesota’s new NFL stadium: it’s part fluoroplastic, part Viking sailing ship and an angular nod to other Minneapolis landmarks like the Walker Art Center and the Guthrie Theater,” writes Tim Nelson on Stadium Watch. ”And the roof won’t be opening. That said, the south half of the roof will be sheathed in ETFE, a transparent polymer made famous by the glowing exterior of the Beijing National Aquatics Center from the 2008 Olympics. The north half of the roof will be conventional “hard deck” roofing, but fans in Minneapolis will be able to see the sky year round, without sitting out in wintry weather.”
