On Sunday night’s episode of “60 Minutes,” Danish architecture firm Bjarke Ingels Group unveiled its proposed design for a new stadium for the Washington Redskins. It resembles a mix between a haphazardly placed boardwalk and Chicago’s Cloud Gate (a.k.a. “The Bean”).
But if you look a little closer, you’ll see a great opportunity for hockey fans.
The renderings shows a surfer riding a gnarly wave in the stadium’s moat, a few sunbathers lounging on the beach, and some good-looking teens rollerskating in tank tops. But, for some reason, something about this doesn’t seem to fit . . . Oh, wait. Football season begins in September.
The Redskins’ fans would have about a month to enjoy this nice set-up before the Washington, D.C., weather sets in and turns that beautiful moat into a sheet of ice. Wait. A sheet of ice?!
