Let’s take a virtual tour through the Falcons’ new stadium

The Falcons' new stadium will be quite a sight.


What’s better than an NFL stadium? A new NFL stadium.

The Atlanta Falcons will move into a new facility in 2017 and the stadium’s architect — HOK — has just released a video that provides a fly-through of what people will see when they walk through the doors.

"Inspired by the oculus in the ancient Rome Pantheon, the stadium’s unique roof opening will provide tremendous flexibility in hosting a wide variety of events in the stadium. Eight unique roof petals can open in less than eight minutes, creating a "camera lens-like" effect that exposes the inside of the facility to the open air on game and event days. The roof is constructed of ETFE fabric that, when closed, allows for translucent light into the stadium."

Impressive. Check it out for yourself:
