Keeping up with the Jerry Jones'

Potential new Atlanta Falcons stadium features IMAX, vibrating seats (http://gamedayr.com/gamedayr/video-of-new-atlanta-falcons-stadium-designs/)

The Atlanta Falcons gained city approval for a new stadium to replace the Georgia Dome. The $1 billion project is still in the very early design stages, but, judging by this video, it is going to be the greatest thing since sliced bread.

There are currently two design favorites. One looks more like the standard stadium dome design, while the other looks like an airplane hangar. No matter what the exterior looks like, the inside is going to have (maybe) an IMAX, a fantasy football lounge and freakiní vibrating seats.

Unreal.

It looks better than Georgia Dome now. Talk about plain AND ugly.

Anyway, from these types of prototypes, the end result is usually nowhere near where it started. Just architects jackin' it. Case in point: concept cars at auto shows, and then what finally makes it to the consumer.

building concepts are not usually that far off the general idea they are aiming for. anything close to that is a billion dollars worth of looking like crap. im sure it will have the bells and whistles but its still ugly.

It looks modern and cutting edge...no doubt the look Mr. Blank wants. After living through old Atlanta Stadium, the Omni, Georgia Dome, I am sure we can handle these designs.

I am just glad their ideas weren't just more of the same old stadium crap.

BTW, are these the concepts from which they will work towards a decision, or just concepts presented during the process of selecting the design firm?

That first one looks pretty cool, but the vibrating seats are way over the top. They will be ridiculously expensive and will probably be out of order before the first season is over.

Let me guess--the seats come with attachments that may be obtained for additional fees, right?

The screens right above the seats are stupid. Why even bother going to the game if you are just going watch the screen?

Vinny you leave your self open there. Does she tend to need a little extra vibration?

And the Falcons have an initial approval for this "futuristic" design:

http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nfl-shutdown-corner/falcons-initial-approval-forward-futuristic-stadium-design-212055897.html

Click the link for some of the pictures



The first drawings of the Atlanta Falcons' proposed new stadium put the team firmly in the forefront of facility design, to be sure. While most of the new stadiums in any outdoor sport go forward at reasonable" paces, the Falcons' idealized stadium looks like something out of the next century, and it's looking like it will happen.

According to the team's official site, the Falcons have completed a full conceptual design of the new stadium, which is estimated to be complete in time for the 2017 season. As you would expect from the designs, it will take a LOT of people to get this done. As the Falcons move forward on the actual schematic design stage, they announced that three different architectural firms will partner with the main agency, 360 Architecture.

“The conceptual design phase of the new stadium project has been a dynamic, interactive and collaborative process,” Falcons President & CEO Rich McKay said in a statement. “Our discussions and decisions have focused on creating an iconic asset for the city and state, a great game day experience for our fans and attendees of other events that will be held in the new stadium, and a connection with the surrounding communities. We look forward to moving into the more detailed design phase with our great partners at 360 Architecture and their recently-selected joint venture partners.”

The estimated cost for the facility is $1 billion, with public funding of $200 million, and the Falcons taking on all other costs. It will sit on the south side of the Georgia Dome, the Falcons' current home, which will be demolished when the new place is complete.

At a recent meeting with the Georgia World Congress Center Authority’s Stadium Development Committee, Bill Johnson of 360 Architecture talked about the concept of a more open stadium -- a "window on the world," so to speak. One challenge was the idea of a more open retractable roof, and Johnson said that the plan is to have “an open building that closes rather than a closed building that opens,” which may involve a glass-like material that can be transparent or opaque, depending on the weather.

There will be a team of general contractors -- Holder Construction Company, H.J. Russell & Company, and C.D. Moody Construction Company have worked together before, most recently and notably on the design for the International terminal at the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

The stadium will seat approximately 70,000 people, with 180 luxury suites and 7,500 club seats. The Georgia Dome seats 71,228, has 162 suites, and 5,174 club seats.

the Astrodome was once considered futuristic. something to consider when putting crap together.
