Description: Vikings Stadium

The new stadium is to be built in the place of Metrodome, in downtown Minneapolis. Replacement should take from October 2013 to 2016, when American football team Vikings should be ready to move back inside. The project's estimated worth is $975 million.

Over the period of 31 months some 4.3 million work hours are to be spent on the project and the total number of people involved should reach 7,500.

The vision of HKS Architects was presented in May 2013, after two initial concepts earned the Texas-based practice contract for the works.

For financial constraints the stadium will not have a retractable roof, but southern part of the cover is hoped to become the world's largest transparent glass roof, creating an open feel. To enhance it further, part of the glass walls will be retractable.
