Target Field Architectural Tour ▼

Don't miss out on this opportunity for a private tour of Target Field with a focus on architecture and sustainability.

The Architecture of Target Field
Build it and they will come! After many years indoors at the Metrodome, the Twins knew what they wanted: an outdoor, Minnesota baseball park. By all measures, they succeeded. In its first year, Target Field received many awards for its beautiful design and the high-quality fan experience. In The Architecture of Target Field, tour the ballpark with its engineering and design issues in mind, learning about its site, its materials, its architects and builders, its structure, and its function.

Environment and Sustainability
It's not just the grass that's green! At Target Field, sustainability and environmental stewardship are important elements of building design and operations. Target Field achieved Silver certification from the U.S. Green Building Council's Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED) program, and it is the highest-ranked LEED-certified major league ballpark. Target Field leads the way in transit, water use, and recycling. In the Environment and Sustainability tour, learn how LEED credits fit at Target Field and how the ballpark meets the many environmental challenges of a sports facility.

Who Should Attend?

Interior design students of all levels, from freshmen to recent graduates. With the wide array of topics covered, something new is guaranteed to pique your interest in interior design!
