Im very excited. This stadium is going to look like no other that has been built.


Edit:

Insightful interview with one of the architects about the stadium

That is definatly a thing if architectural beauty. I thought it was a neat idea for the cardinals to give their new stadium a rattle-snake resemblance, but this blows that out of the water.

It's all private funding and the 1% hotel tax, so no funds from Atlanta taxpayers.

Why are they designing it to look like a rose?

Honestly it's gonna look ugly as hell on the sides. It looks sweet from above, but fans won't see the top obviously.

I think Atlanta will end up hosting the Olympics again in the next few decades. I hope this time would end up better than 1996 did.
