The design for the new Vikings stadium is one of the more striking visions for a sports arena. Its angular shape and glass walls should make for an interesting addition to a skyline that can still be fairly described as generic. I’d still prefer that public dollars not be used to fund its construction (particularly since the plan for producing those public dollars is looking more and more ill-conceived). But if we must have a new stadium, it should at least be appealing to the eye. Let’s hope the design also incorporates strong accessibility principles that make the stadium welcoming to everyone.

And I suppose I can be persuaded to shell out what is likely to be an exorbitant amount to watch the Packers smack the Vikings around in their new home.
