Target Center Forums Tour

Target Center was constructed in the late 1980’s when many arenas were totally closed off to the exterior and the building was at the edge of downtown Minneapolis. Since that time, downtown Minneapolis has grown dramatically. As a result, Target Center is now in the heart of the city.

The design approach recognizes this dramatic change in the downtown context, addressing improvements on all sides of the building. The design opens up the original building, simultaneously animating the experience for patrons inside the building while enlivening the exterior environment in this dynamic urban entertainment district in downtown Minneapolis.
