Bjarke Ingels will reveal the model of the new Washington Redskins football stadium on 60 Minutes. The 41-year-old Danish architect tells Morley Safer that “The stadium is designed as much for the tailgating, like the pre-game, as for the game itself.” The new stadium, which will cost up to $1 billion to build, will include a moat for tailgating kayakers.
