Authentic Sustainability: U.S. Bank Stadium

Authentic Sustainability: U.S. Bank Stadium


In 2012, HKS was commissioned to build a new home for the storied Minnesota Vikings. One of the earliest and clearest project goals was to redefine the notion of a sustainable stadium. Our approach to the form was to reflect the specific location and climate of the site. It is an old way of thinking from times when buildings had to be responsive to the environment, or they would not last or be comfortable to inhabit; this is true sustainability.
