A fly-through over the new Atlanta Falcons’ stadium has been released, revealing an unprecedented retractable roof designed by 360 Architecture (recently acquired by HOK). According to the stadium’s official website, the Pantheon-inspired stadium’s “eight unique roof petals” can rotate open in less than eight minutes, much like a “camera lens.” It will also be clad in a translucent ETFE fabric that, when closed, will allow natural light to pass into its interior. 

The video, after the break.

The stadium, already under construction, will feature expandable seating (up to 83,000 seats), a 61,000 square-foot public plaza and the “100-Yard Bar.” It is expected to open in 2017.
