Architecturally, it is more interesting than the original air-inflated roof. Any reason for the change besides aesthetics?

Basically, the building is going green. It left a major carbon footprint with having to run the fans 24/7 365 days a year to keep the roof inflated. Here's a new update:

And, according to the article, the stadium is getting a new name which is no surprise. This will offset the cost of installing the new roof. I wonder which corp will get the naming rights.
