(CBS News)  Bjarke Ingles is the architect of the moment, designing everything from skyscrapers to the NFL stadiums. Sunday, Morley Safer of CBS’s 60 Minutes spoke with the 41 year old about his designs, which include the possible new home of the Washington Redskins.

In the video player below, check out a first look at Ingles’ design for the stadium.

The new images released by CBS show a slightly transparent, wave-like structure, surrounded by a moat for kayakers, along with parks and bridges for tailgaters and fans.

The team’s lease at Fed-Ex Field in Prince George’s County, MD, does not expire for years, however Redskins officials are looking at potential new places for the team to play once that deal expires.

The Bjarke Ingels Group also designed Google’s greenhouse-style headquarters in Mountain View, California. The firm is currently working on a plan with museums on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. and has exhibits in the National Building Museum.
