Today’s sports architects have the tough task of designing stadiums and arenas that can hold multiple events, while making each experience in the building feel intimate and unique. No firm is better at tackling that challenge than the renowned architects at HKS.
Not surprisingly, HKS is designing the Minnesota Vikings’ new stadium to be able to accommodate both football games and college basketball Final Fours. Minneapolis is one of eight finalists to host a Final Four between 2017-2020. HKS has designed other NFL/Final Four stadiums in Arlington and Indianapolis.
There’s a reason so many NFL teams have recently tapped HKS to design their stadium. Led by innovators Bryan Trubey and Mark Williams, the firm is the best in the industry at designing stadiums that maximize revenue opportunities. Don’t be surprised when the NCAA selects Minneapolis and the new Vikings stadium as a future Final Four host.
