Photos: Atlanta Falcons $1.2 Billion Stadium Design Approved

Wednesday October 30th, 2013

On October 29, the Georgia World Congress Center Authority approved a $1.2 million budget and a “complete schematic design” for a new Atlanta Falcons stadium.

Don’t mind that extra $200 million added to the budget and instead remember the wild angular eight-paneled roof will open and close in a fashion we’ve never quite seen before.

While this 360 Architecture-designed stadium has seen some tweaks in the past few months, a new batch of visuals was released to show more details. The new design teases a window looking out on the city from inside the stadium, a soccer setup if Atlanta ever lands a MLS team, and just exactly what that open roof will look like from the inside.
