In like 1988 I road tripped to see Van Halen, Metallica and the Scorpions play at the Silverdome. Don’t remember much as lots of alcohol might have been involved.

I believe they call them "column blades". They are the large support pillars in the image below. Originally, I thought they were going to be round, but they are more of a rounded triangle, hence the name, "blade".

They will stack them and, I imagine, skim coat them with some smooth membrane, for their final appearance.

On another note, if you didn't already know, there will be a 6K seat arena under the south east portion of the covered dome (i.e. the elongated tail portion of the dome).
