With a unanimous nod from the Georgia World Congress Center's stadium authority, it appears the firm 360 Architecture will be picked to design the new Atlanta Falcons stadium — and a senior principal has lofty plans for the project. Two concepts were discussed Monday, as the Saporta Report notes: "One circular concept (called the 'Pantheon of Atlanta' design) included a swirling roof design of smaller, lighter roof panels that would open up to the full length of the football field in between five to seven minutes ... The other design (the 'Solarium concept') was a rectangular stadium where two large roof panels would pull back into wing-like structures in under 12 minutes." [Saporta Report]
