I found that Riley Smith was focusing on the Georgia Dome for her PA project. I am doing my analysis on the Reichstag building in Germany and the first thing I noticed was the prominence of a unifying dome in both of our buildings. Although the Georgia dome is used for more recreational purposes and the Reichstag building is used more as a political symbol, both domes illustrate a sense of unification. Also, both domes utilize glass as a main material thus emphasizing the idea of connecting the building to the heavens.
