Wood ceilings and walls help convey energy of college football

From the outside, the rotunda at the College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta looks very much like a football. “It’s an iconic piece of architecture,” says project architect Emery Leonard of TVS Design, Atlanta. “Some people call it a football – some people call it a helmet. We abstracted it a bit.”

The design team wanted the interior of the rotunda to convey the same sense of energy about the game. “We wanted visitors to know they were inside that same football or helmet,” he says. “We wanted that energy to be experienced from both outside and inside the building.”
