Far out: Atlanta Falcons release images of plans for futuristic new stadium (photos)


It isn’t scheduled to open until 2017, but Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank spoke with WSB-TV to discuss recently unveiled renderings of the new downtown stadium.

And from the images released, it’s pretty futuristic  and definitely far out.

Blank, who said he will be very hands-on with the massive project, said, “I promise you this is going to be a world-class sports entertainment facility that will be equal or better to anything in the world today.”

And if these renderings are any indication, he might be on to something.

Man, it looks like some kind of large-scale Origami project. That costs over a billion dollars, presumably. Still, pretty sweet.
