HKS Selected to Design Vikings Stadium


By Rick Horrow and Karla Swatek

September 28, 2012

Renowned architecture firm HKS has been selected to design the new $975 million Minnesota Vikings football stadium, currently set to open in time for the 2016 NFL season. Since the stadium will be on the Metrodome site, the Vikings will temporarily play at the University of Minnesota’s TCF Bank Stadium while their new home is under construction.

HKS was one of five major sports architects to bid on the project, beating out firms including Populous, AECOM, and HNTB. The Dallas-based HKS, the number one green sports and entertainment design firm in the country, has committed to working with a local architect firm on part of the project. HKS previously built Cowboys Stadium in Arlington and Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, home of the last two Super Bowls.

Ironically, the financing plan for the Vikings’ new stadium resembles the one put together in Indianapolis for the Colts. In both cases, the team, state, and city contributed money to the project. The Vikings are paying for half of the stadium, while the Colts’ portion amounted to 14%.
