Is Bjarke Ingels Designing a Stadium for the Redskins?

According to Sports Business Daily, Danish architect Bjarke Ingel's BIG has teamed up with the NFL's Washington Redskins to design a new football stadium in an as-yet-undisclosed location near the nation's capital. Currently balancing a number of high-profile projects, BIG has yet to work an athletic venue, though it's in the running for a soccer stadium in Barcelona. The article quotes unnamed sources as confirming the partnership, though BIG's head of communications, Daria Pahhota, only confirmed the firm was designing an NFL stadium, not the specific client, and the Redskins's Senior VP/Communications, Tony Wyllie, didn't return an email for comment. Ingels did post a photo of Redskins M&M's on Instagram a few months ago, for what that's worth, and mentioned an in-the-works NFL project to Women's Wear Daily late last year.
