Now from the inside looking at the same area.
A desolate Marquette Ave
The view from the upper concourse.
They help create a psychological safe area along the plaza edge, and help you forget that cars are zipping by directly beneath you.

Ullger warms up.
This is a great spot for casually watching the game.
Killebrew's mammoth shot on June 3, 1967 is currently memorialized on a wall at the Mall of America
Here's a curious little room at the end of the circulation ramp. What could they be selling there?
Looking back toward First Avenue
This is where you will put out your butts -- I mean enjoy some pretty flowers.
Yep, that's real grass down there, son.
This design has a rather generic quality to it, but they appear to have considered the B garage. Though it isn't part of the model, they've clearly left room for it.
This mural is behind the staircase. The window looks onto the promenade, and the door goes to a kitchen.
Looking through the transit hub
The tower is actually finished, though it looks like a work in progress.
Section 125, Row 1
This is as close as I could get to a pedestrian-eye view of the main entrance. This is what you'll see as you enter by coming down Sixth Street.

Look beyond the gigantic hand (a hounds tooth jacket? really?) and you'll get a glimpse of the main grandstand configuration. The two (or is it three?) levels of suites are visible, as is the design of the so-called "split upper deck," and the extensive use of limestone for decorative accents. Let's hope these little touches don't get cut as costs increase, because they make a nice tie-in from the outside of the park to the inside. Of most interest to me is the way that the very best seats are physically separated from all the rest of the seats by that limestone. There will be virtually no way to sneak into these seats. On one level, that's a somewhat sad design feature...
