Love the first hate the second
By the way, that Pantheon design is SICK (that's a compliment.) There's not a structure on earth that looks anything like it. People would come from all over to see it and just take pictures of it.
I like that design as well, the other one is just to plain, and looks like a greenhouse
I can just hear in playing. "I'm starting to see spaceships on Bankhead"
Scotty's calling me.
2nd one looks like a nest, I can dig that.
You can do that with the nest design, i think.
I prefer the second, but I was really looking forward to the idea of being able to see the Atlanta skyline from inside the new building, like Blank mentioned in that one press conference.I definitely prefer the inside look of the spacey one though, so if it's going to be closed most of the time then give me the crazy ****.

If it isn't retractable, then why does the oculus open and close? SMH. re·tract /riˈtrakt/Verb Draw or pull (something) back or back in: "she retracted her hand".Withdraw (a statement or accusation) as untrue or unjustified.

like because of oculus
Bank of America building? I think that's what you mean at least.
not sure if anyone's already responded, but sounds more like One Atlantic Center:
Yeah that's it.
Oh, that's the one you meant. FYI: that's the tallest building in the Southeast!
If these are the only designs they've come up with, I have a feeling the spaceship is gonna win. I'd rather have square one, but with the environmental "green" qualities and the "innovativeness" of the spaceship design, I just feel like Blank would want that one.
I would hate the sun being a spotlight as well, and the suites for that one looked like they didn't even have private bathrooms. I didn't see the suites for the other one though so it may have been the same.
Only thing I didn't like about the square one was that the open side wasn't facing the skyline. I think the view from inside the stadium would be cool if the open side faced the skyline, like the Seahawks stadium. Also, don't know if it would be possible, but it would be cool to have some seating on the open side as well. For some reason, stadiums without seating on all sides of the field look incomplete to me.
I agree with you about the mothership. Too many moving parts. I can see some of those panels screwing up like the lights in the SewerDome.Oh and please can you lighten up with all the ocular engineering terminology? lol

I actually rode the Mothership once ....it was light years ago in the FOX galaxy ...my brain was orbiting Pluto at the time.
I was liking this one until I saw this. I would hate that sun being a spotlight like that.
The roof isn't completely open in that shot. That spotlight would be much bigger I imagine.
Would anybody use the Fantasy lounge if they build it?
Cowboy stadium looks like azz, especially compared to this.
Have you ever been to Cowboys Stadium? They have girls dancing on poles in there. Best stadium in the NFL
For real LOL ? ....man I got to check that out , might be better than the Pink Pony
First one is too plain and the second looks like origami. I hope it looks like neither
Did they announce any info on PSL?
Will that Bar/Lounge be open all the time, like a normal restaurant? I would love to go eat at the Dome whenever Im in Atlanta. That would be really cool.
The bar lounge is shown at the club level seating.
I like the one in Arizona. When I went there for the playoff game in 2008, it was absolutely ear shattering in there - great sound control. Plus, the whole bottom slides out for sun - so they have natural grass instead of turf. What an awesome concept.
Regardless, I'll be there if I'm still on this earth - as long as the Falcons are playing there - it'll be fine by me.
After watching the video my opinion has changed pantheon ftw. That's by far the coolest stadium I've ever seen. It would be so fun to see Ryan to Jones touchdown passes over Kenny vaccaro in there.
Not a little sunroof opening? If you want a retractable roof that is basically an open air stadium when open then you want the first one.
You lost me.
Solarium is the first one.
It could have a big Falcons logo that came together when it was closed.
I'm likin' that
Not about to go through tis entire thread, but incase it hasen't been posted, here is the full presentation from 360.
I'm a fan of Calatrava so I was hoping it would look similar to the defunct Atlanta Symphony Center design. The spaceship looking one is pretty unique, I hope they go with that design versus the safe glass warehouse / greenhouse choice. Although the safe one would offer a wonderful view of the Atlanta skyline.
