SentryGlas®TW for the College Football Hall of Fame

SentryGlas®TW for the College Football Hall of Fame

The SentryGlas®TW ionoplast interlayer was selected to play a key role in the design of the glass façade and interior entrance tunnel ceiling at the College Football Hall of Fame, Atlanta, Georgia, USA.

Designed by architect’s tvsdesign and constructed by Brasfield & Gorrie LLC the College Football Hall of Fame is a three-storey, 8,733 m2 (94,000 square feet) hall of fame and museum devoted to college football.

The building features historic and contemporary artefacts, interactive multimedia displays, children’s activities, meeting facilities, a theatre, a 41 m (45-yard) indoor turf field for interactive play and special events, as well as street-level retail and restaurant space.

In homage to the sport, part of the attraction’s external façade features a rotunda that looks like a football. The rotunda sits atop the entrance and in front of the lobby, providing views into and out of the Hall.

The ability to combrine white colour effects with impressive strength-to-weight ratio and excellent postbreakage performance mean that Trosifol’s Translucent White SentryGlas®TW ionoplast interlayer was an ideal solution for the building’s façade.

Justin Hughes, Senior Associate at tvsdesign comments: “The rotunda and external glass frontage of the building were critical critical aspects of the overall structure. We wanted a kind of billboard-look to the façade, but combined with a high quality, sophisticated glass look. We are very happy with the end result.”
