So if you havent seen the latest concept drawings produced by Kansas City based Architectural company 360 Architecture. These designs are totally awesome.
There are two different designs, the “Pantheon”, pictured above, and the Solarum, pictured below. The Pantheon is clearly the more awesome approach, even though the Solarum is probably more practical.
The nicest touch on the Solarum, which is very similar in style to Lucas Oil Stadium in indianapolis, is the flexible material that will make up both the roof and part of the siding. when the roof is open it almost gives off the traditional stadium look of being wider at the top as the seating spreads out. That said, here are some more pictures of the Pantheon design because it is clearly the most awesome stadium concept ever designed.
Thats right, those fans on the top over the field close to make the stadium a dome with huge windows making a ring in the sky above the field. totally awesome.
if you didnt notice, there is a giant video board that lines the entire rim of the building that makes the board at Jerryworld look like a 10″ black and white piece of junk. I have been to Atlanta many times and plan on going many more before I die(if you havent been there, it is a pretty cool place to go) I really hope this stadium becomes a reality because I cant wait to go there to see a game. the Stadium, whatever design it ends up being, will be completed before the 2017 season.
