Paper models of the new stadium

Vision of Twins stadium takes the field
A nice little update on the stadium, which includes proposed field dimensions (339/404/328 as compared to the Metrodome's 343/408/327), seating capacity (40,000), and land footprint (the marshmallow bubble is bigger than the whole new stadium site. That's very compact, but sounds preferable to me: that might mean the seats are more vertical like the Xcel and you can actually see well from everywhere.) You can get a slight glimpse of some paper models: one with some slightly curved flaps, and another that looks very modern and Walker/Guthrie-esque.
