Design an athletic building that reflects the people of a city and an entire state Its a tall order. But it can be done when vision and design align, resulting in a space that does more than welcome sports, it welcomes an entire community.
The goal of the U.S. Bank Stadium is to create a resource that welcomes all the people of the Twin Cities and the state of Minnesota. All of its patrons, its users and its neighbors can see themselves reflected in the design and materials their climate, their character, their history, their experience. It provides an iconic venue for sporting and cultural events, while also offering plazas, parks and an observation platform that embraces the surrounding urban environment and can be used year-round. Within the stadium, the fan experience is heightened by a design that balances protection from the elements with a connection to the outdoors: operable doors providing views of the Minneapolis skyline and surrounding plazas.
