PROJECT: Mercedes Benz Stadium
Size: 2 Milllion Square Feet
INDUSTRY: Sports + Entertainment
At a height of 305 feet, the stadium features a distinctive facade that consists of a light-weight plastic skin and a unique retractable roof that allows natural light to enter the stadium either through the roof being opened or by natural light entering the stadium through the north and east ends. The oculus retractable roof, that resembles a pinwheel, is reminiscent of the Roman Pantheon and a falcon’s wings. Consisting of eight triangle pieces, the roof can open or close within ten minutes. A 61,000 square foot outdoor fan plaza outside the stadium is a great place for fans to mingle before or after games. It features live entertainment, food and beverage options. A massive 41.5-foot tall stainless steel statue of a falcon is also located outside Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
