The Minnesota Vikings

TCO STEM Innovation Center

“Viking’s STEM Center Home to Røkkr Esports Team”

The 64,000 SF building is seated in a key position within the Vikings Lakes, serving as the center point of the development. With this in mind, the aesthetic of the building was designed to be a catalyst, coherently drawing together all of the neighboring facilities through the use of design motifs and materials. Every angle of the building’s exterior was designed to be an approachable, appealing viewpoint for the overall structure. The low-rise profile of the building keeps it as an unassuming, yet impressive landmark facility, allowing the passer-by to view the sunset and sunrise beyond the building silhouette.

The building serves as the campus’s primary parking structure, housing two floors of parking spaces, with a full floor of STEM Tech Offices above. The STEM Innovation Center also serves as home to the Minnesota Røkkr esports team, housing scrimmage and competition centers for the Vikings-owned franchise. Using sustainable urban design principles, the STEM Tech Incubator was able to achieve LEED Gold Certification.
