Last week completed almost 3 years of documenting the demolition of the Metrodome to the first game in the new Vikings’ U.S. Bank Stadium.
It all started when I happened to ask a police officer why he was blocking off the road next to the Metrodome one Sunday morning. He said that they were going to be blowing up the walls of the Metrodome in a few minutes, so we stuck around. Here’s the footage I shot on my cell phone that morning with the kids in the car with me.
After that, I’ve been intrigued with the demolition of the Metrodome and the construction of the new Vikings Stadium.
I took pictures just about every week. Here are a couple of time lapses of the construction as well as links to the stadium’s progress since construction started.
Two years ago (January 2014), I took some pictures of the Metrodome demolition. Today I tried to take pictures from those same spots two years later. Pretty crazy the progress they’ve made on the new stadium.
