Description: U.S. Bank Stadium

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

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.
