One company in the running for the design of the new Atlanta Falcons stadium is re-imagining the game day experience. The Falcons’ potential new home could be the most futuristic stadium the public has ever seen.
Team owner Arthur Blank and Atlanta mayor Kasim Reed announced in March plans to build a new stadium for the team. Some of the early renderings from the company selected to design the new $1 billion stadium, 360 Architecture, have been made public, and the two options are pretty innovative. One option resembles the “Bird’s Nest” from the 2008 Beijing Olympics, and the other looks like some sort of futuristic toaster.
Both renderings showcase retractable roofs. The plans from the Georgia World Congress Center also highlight “impact seating,” that vibrate when a hit is made, large IMAX-like screens above fan seating to create 360 degrees of immersion in the game and a fantasy football lounge.
Check out the designs in action in the video below.
