Vikings First look Tim Nelson September 28, 2012, 5:00 PM Sep 28, 2012 0 Here are the renderings just released by the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority, in connection with the selection of HKS as the architectural firm that will design the new downtown Minneapolis stadium. One proposal for a new Vikings stadium has a transparent, cable-supported roof. University of Minnesota College of Design dean Tom Fisher called the “ribbon” roof “really out of the box.” Another rendering from Dallas-based HKS. It’s at least the third replacement for the Metrodome they’ve drawn.
