For those of you interested in football stadium design, there's an interesting
article today in the Atlanta Business Chronicle about the new $1.2 billion Atlanta Falcons stadium.
The design by Kansas City, Mo.-based firm 360 Architecture was approved by the Georgia World Congress Center Authority board on Tuesday.
Architect Bill Johnson described the design this way: "The eight-sided building will resemble eight wings of a falcon taking flight -- giving the building a sense of motion."
Unlike the proposed $975 million Vikings stadium, the Atlanta facility has a retractable roof, although the article points out that such roofs can be temperamental.
