HOK’s LEED Platinum certified stadium for the Atlanta Falcons

The ostensibly spaceship and doughnut influenced-design of HOK‘s Mercedes-Benz Stadium (for the Atlanta Falcons) has proved one of the most striking to be unveiled this year, and it is now LEED Platinum certified. Which makes it the first professional sports stadium in the world with this certification. While most notable for its general appearance and enormous sunroof, our friends at HOK and Buro Happold Engineering outfitted the complex with a bevy of sustainability functions: 4,000 photovoltaic produce enough solar electricity to power nine games; water-saving fixtures allow the stadium to use 47% less water than a structure of comparable size; the stadium will also feature a 13-acre green space and electrical vehicle charging stations.
