ATLANTA (June 14, 2013) – The Atlanta Falcons announced today that 360 Architecture has selected three Atlanta-based firms, pending final contracts, to partner in the design of the new stadium in Atlanta. The three firms – Goode Van Slyke Architecture (GVSA), Stanley Beaman & Sears, and tvsdesign – each bring unique skills to the table.

“The three partners selected provide an attractive combination of skill sets, chemistry and capacity,” said Bill Johnson, senior principal of 360 Architecture. “Coupled with their knowledge of Atlanta, and the new stadium area in particular, we look forward to their many contributions to this project.”

Great looking design!

One of the latest attempts to incorporate a contemporary and modern design that will not resemble the stadiums of old. I like the design approach and the openness of the grand sloped roof! This will be one I will have to see for myself!

The nearly billion-dollar Viking stadium that will rise from the ruins of the old Metrodome will be big, bold and put fans closer to the action than any other venue in professional football.

It’ll have giant pivoting glass doors that open to the downtown Minneapolis skyline and a roof that, while not retractable, will let in so much sunlight come game days, fans will feel as though they’re sitting outdoors.

Seven stadium decks will surround a field of artificial turf and two giant high-tech scoreboards at each end zone will replay the big plays and flash the game stats.
