In response to the highly competitive convention center business, this structure was designed to leave a sophisticated and lasting impression on patrons, enticing them to return. Along with its flexible layouts and ample public areas, the floor plan features a 40,000-square-foot ballroom, which is the largest in the southeastern United States. With anticipation for the future, Tilt-Up panels can be removed to expand the building and add exhibition space.
Because the Convention Center is located near the end of two runways at the Hartsfield/Jackson International Airport, Tilt-Up panels were selected for their high mass walls that can reduce aircraft sound transfer.
The curved front of the building was constructed with flat panels, but the radius was big enough to give the appearance of a curved wall. In association with the airport location, the large sweeping curves and sloping panels of the building give visitors a sense of movement and flight.
